    by Bonnie Meinke

    We have a wealth of ISON info for you this week, thanks to the Division of Planetary Sciences (DPS) conference, held in Denver, Colo., from Oct. 6-11. Planetary scientists from around the globe met to discuss the latest Comet ISON observations.

    • This press release details the latest observations and predictions for Comet ISON's survival from Matthew Knight and Kevin Walsh.
    • Matthew Knight discusses his latest prediction of Comet ISON's perihelion survival.
    • This page has the press conference from the DPS conference held in Denver, Colo., this week. Jian-Yang Li and Matthew Knight each discuss their studies of Comet ISON. (The embedded video is a little wonky – you'll have to wait through the first two topics before getting to ISON stuff, but those are both super interesting, we promise!)
