In this latest episode of Book of Nature (Recorded in mid-December, 2018) the Book of Nature trio discuss Comets, the “dirty snowballs” that are our periodically-visiting Solar System Neighbors. Among our topics in this episode are:
Comets as portents of doom, or as signs of blessings
Our personal experiences with recent comets
The orbital characteristics of comets, and their physical makeup
Space probes launched to explore comets
Bad sci-fi (again?)
and much more.
