Comet comes to the sun - level 1

Comet comes to the sun - level 1

03-12-2013 14:00

There is a comet. This comet comes close to the sun. It is 1 million kilometers from the sun. Scientists watch this comet. They are interested in it.

The comet is very fast. Its speed is 234 miles per second (377 kilometers per second). It is hot, too. Its temperature is 2,700 degrees. The comet survives or it doesn’t survive. We don’t know what will happen. We must wait.

If the comet survives, we can watch it in December. Even if it dies, scientists can still study it.

Difficult words: scientist (clever person who is an expert in something), temperature (number which tells you how hot things are), survive (live).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
