Comets are considered by scientists as very important making sure conditions are earth were just right for life…There were once thought of nothing more than ice balls but recently what they have found was complexity…
“Dr John Bridges, from the Space Research Centre, explains the results, ‘Comets are starting to look a lot more complicated than the old dusty iceball idea. For one thing Wild-2 contains material, like chromium oxides, from the hot inner Solar System – so how did that material get mixed in with a comet which has spent most of its life beyond Neptune? It suggests that there has been major mixing of material from inner and outer parts of the Solar System in its earliest stages.” Science Daily
Thanks to the Stardust space mission, some observational samples were taken in the Kuiper Belt near Neptune. What I find even more interesting about this particular space mission is…scientists believe it’s a archaeological information gathering mission.
“They will then begin unravelling the archaeological information trapped in the orbit of this highly exceptional member of the trans-Neptunian population.”
You can’t do archaeology in orbit. When someone does archaeology they generally take physical samples out of the ground, or study objects they found while digging in the ground. To claim you can conduct archaeology high in the sky is research fraud.
It is interesting to note, the comet of interest, spent most of it’s time beyond Neptune which is very cold like conditions. This would in turn render any object like comets very cold. It’s basic physics. In evolutionary astronomy everything is born hot except for space itself which is cold and presumed pre-existing particles which accidently created such things as atoms.
