Chasing Comets - Google Hangout

Wednesday, 14 January, 2015

The solar system is littered with Ice. The bulk of this material orbits quietly in the outer Solar System, but sometimes, something disturbs the ice and it comes plunging in toward the Sun. In this Google Hangout, we will discuss comets, how we explore them, and how they brought water to worlds like Earth.
