Density[edit]

102 +/-9 kg/m-3 ? wouldn't that be a density just 1/10th that of solid ice? Yes, I see that number in the referenced document [2], but it doesn't make sense to me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.160.113.36 (talk) 00:00, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

It is also a function of the porosity of the object. It is common for a comet to have a density much less than water. -- Kheider (talk) 17:47, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
