Komet Halley (pron.: /ˈhæli/ or /ˈhli/; rasmi ditandoi 1P/Halley)[1] marupoan benda langik nan tanamo sabagai salah satu komet maso pendek, dan benda ko buliah dilihek jo mato dari Bumi satiok 75 atau 76 taun.[1][10] Komet Halley adolah satu-satunyo Komet maso pendek nan sabana jaleh diliek jo mato kapalo dari bumi, penampakan ko mungkin dapek dilieek dek manusia duo kali sa umua hiduiknyo.[11] mungkin penampakannyo nan labiah spektakuler muncul satu kali dalam ribuan taun.

"densities obtained by this procedure are in reasonable agreement with intuitive expectations of densities near 1 g/cm3, the uncertainties in several parameters and assumptions expand the error bars so far as to make the constraints on the density uniformative ... suggestion that cometary nuclei tend to by very fluffy, ... should not yet be adopted as a paradigm of cometary physics.".
