Question: What kind of player was it (Comet Ison)? Some say that it was re-seeding earth with new organisms as it might have done had all mankind been wiped off the face of the Earth possibly. Any of that ring true?
Higgins: Seeding can happen that way. Let us suppose for a moment that nuclear holocaust destroyed all living things and damaged the topography of Earth. The nuclear radiation would be allowed to degrade. A massive ice chunk embedded with living organisms could then be ‘launched’ towards Earth or other receiving planet. Plants and small living organisms would then populate the Earth. When it was once again habitable for animals and humans then those species would be brought in by hosts who would nurture them until they were able to care for themselves.
Comet ISON was more like a space iceberg. It calved and in its travels was flung around your sun.
