In an American Geophysical Union (AGU) press conference last week, an international panel of scientists representing several different spacecraft reported preliminary scientific results from observations of the now-defunct comet. It turns out ISON was much smaller than previously believed and had a surprising amount of carbon.

I'm glad they did get some data out of it before it got flash fried.
