The Universe - Ride the Comet

Future Astronaut Exploring a Comet by Space Artist Pamela Lee From Comet by Carl Sagan and Ann Drunyan copyrighted material 1985

Today on Far Future Horizons we present another episode of the acclaimed documentary series The Universe and hitch a ride on a comet following its path as it traverses the solar system. 

A Comet in the Outer frigid Wastes of Our Solar System

In this installment of The Universe we will board a virtual spaceship to travel  with a variety of comets. We will visit long and short period comets, sungrazing comets, and comets masquerading as asteroids, Finally we will visit comets still in the deep freeze of the Oort cloud.

During our imaginary voyage, we will witness the extremes of our solar system starting from the far frigid outer reaches beyond the orbit of Pluto and then  plunge towards the fiery heart of our own Sun.
