Comet Built Like an Asteroid, Scientists Find


news.nationalgeographic.com

A chemical analysis of the Stardust samples resembled objects from the inner solar system's asteroid belt instead of the pristine and ancient materials expected to be deep-frozen in the much more distant Kuiper Belt, beyond Neptune, said Hope Ishii, the California-based Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory physicist who led the research.

Interesting and unexpected news from a Kuiper belt object. Looks like they might not be just balls of ice after all. Wonder if they could also have components of life as thought by some.

Good to see this from another source . Very interesting subject indeed . One of the posters said this

This is from 2004... So once again plasma cosmology is right in a prediction that "stuns" standard science! this is great!


Thought i would relay it here .

It sounds more like an icy asteroid to me. Where's the evidence of how these comets ar formed? Are they ejections from asteroids hitting a watery or icy surface and freezing in space? These may have been impacts on frozen watery or gaseous moons. A dirty snowball may just collect these particles or other materials during it's cycle.
If it was ejected from a sun, it might also collect these icy crystals traveling through gas clouds. It would be interesting if we could tag these comets and asteroids as they pass through our part of the system like hitching a ride. Isn't this what happened with Eros?

Hi Aleon,
Interesting thought. Maybe the ice that forms on them is what sheds against the Sun to create the tail. It still seems like the material must have been less densely packed than what one would think of as an asteroid. It seems if the material was that hard, there would have been more damage to the recovery craft, and I remember they talked about very fine dust.
