Comets formed about 4.6 billion years ago from the Pre-Solar Nebula and spent most of their existence in the outer and colder regions of the Solar System, beyond the Neptune’s orbit. These small celestial bodies, with masses ranging between 1014g and 1021g, could be considered the cosmo-chemical record of the primordial Solar Nebula. Therefore studying comets means investigating the physic-chemical properties of the material that formed the Solar System. With the aim of exploring the nature and… Expand
