One of the most striking features discovered during the encounter of space probe ICE and comet Giacobini‐Zinner was the presence of intensive MHD turbulence even at large distances from the comet. In this paper it is shown that the mass loading of the solar wind with cometary ions can cause such a phenomenon.
