Scope on the Skies: Convening with Comets

Science Scope -- February 2004

In February 2004, not only were the four brightest planets visible across the evening skies, but there was a comet rendezvous mission nearly completed while another was just getting started. Comet missions not only provide information about comets and their origins, but they also give us an important insight into the origins of our solar system. This month's Scope on the Skies column describes the Stardust spacecraft mission.
