Rosetta 's Comet 67P - As Massive as Mount Baker
This is "only" a short period comet (ie goes round the SUN every 7 years). BUT the real exciting comets are the "long period comets" like COMET ISON last November 2013. Some long period Comets have orbits of 100,000 years BUT some are inbound from an adjacent star and likely carry the seeds of life into our solar system
