    In his recent talk Dr. Carey Lisse, head of NASA’s Comet ISON Observation Campaign gives ISON really two options after it emerges from behind the Sun. Either it will end as Kohoutek (with which it shares a LOT of properties) or it will fragment.

    You can check the talk here:

    Really interesting talk and lots of info about the comets.
