Why The European Space Agency Wants To Visit A Comet
the agency may be able to see untouched material from this early stage of the solar system.
The mission, named Comet Interceptor, completed its study phase and in June 2022,
A comet on its first orbit around the sun would contain unprocessed material from the dawn of the Solar System,
an object and sampling this material will help us understand not only more about comets,
The idea for the Comet Interceptor mission is to build a main spacecraft along with two probes
the comet can be observed from different views in order to build up a 3D picture of it
ESA building the main spacecraft and one probe and JAXA building another.
