Comets, Meteors, & Asteroids
Produced by: Dan Grossman
Important clues to the origins of the solar system come from asteroids, comets and meteors, believed to be remnants from the early solar system. Until the early 1990s, the only information obtained on these bodies was through Earth-based observations, either by observing them in orbit or by examining the remnants that reach us here on Earth. In recent years, scientists have been able to investigate asteroids and comets in unprecedented detail by sending spacecraft to examine them from close range. But space missions allow for more than just observations of asteroids and comets. Our program will detail how the composition, orbits, and trajectories of asteroids, comets and meteorites help predict and record the life of the solar system.
