Comet Velocity?

  1. Sep 21, 2013 #1
    The popular press has been alive lately with stories of asteroid interception and even asteroid recovery.

    Has there been any thoughts of a spacecraft closely approaching a comet? How big are they? How fast do they travel? Is it remotely possible using existing technology? Could we land on one?
