Astronomy studies

A solar system is full of diverse elements. With every closer look, for example by using the special probes, astronomers can explore new and surprising facts. Comets are small icy worlds, spending most of their existence far from the Sun. An original constitution of the solar system is preserved in them, and therefore perhaps an answer to the question, of how the solar system originated 4.5 billion years ago. For a long time people just wandered, how the surface of comets looks like. Only in the last thirty years the efforts of our parents and grandparents culminated, so that we can construct and send probes to the nuclei of comets, observing their surfaces, detect their constitution, and explore more and more intriguing secrets, which might be surpsisingly related to the Earth and life on it.
