Paris (AFP) - Stargazers in south and central Africa will be treated to a spectacular solar eclipse Thursday when the Moon wanders into view to make the Sun appear as a "ring of fire", astronomers say.
NASA researchers think they understand why comets have a hard, crispy outside and a cold but soft inside — just like fried ice cream.
