How do you show "solar wind" blowing a comet's tail away from the sun? Fanimation generously donated a Fargo desktop fan that has become an integral element of all Comet Festival outreach demonstrations. The spherical fan looks more like the sun than a standard table fan, and a comet model made with tinsel for a tail readily conveys the outward flow.
The rugged fan travels well, and has been used at multiple sites, including in ETHOS of Elkhart (left); at the Science Cafe in South Bend; at an MSTCi EXPO; at the Truck Pull and it's great! Community Faire; and at ten all-school assemblies in South Bend.
