YOU ALL HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE WORD COMETS..
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY REALLY ARE?
TODAY I M GOING TO SHARE MY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT COMETS..!!
COMETS are the cosmic snowballs of frozen gases combine with mud,which orbit the solar.They’ve been known as “DUSTY SNOW BALLS”.They might yield vital clues concerning the formation of our photo voltaic system. Comets might have introduced water and natural compounds, the constructing blocks of life, to the early Earth and different components of the photo voltaic system. When passing near the Solar, warms and begins to launch gases.This produces a visual environment, and typically additionally a tail.
Not like the opposite small our bodies within the photo voltaic system,comets have been recognized since antiquity.
NOW LET ME TAKE YOU TO THE HISTORY OF THE COMETS….
In 1995,878 comets have been cataloged.Of those 184 are periodic comets whose orbital intervals lower than 200 years.These are the combination of ices(each water and frozen gases).
Comets are invisible besides when they’re close to the Solar.
Most comets have extremely eccentric orbits which take them far past the orbit of PLUTO,these are seen as soon as after which disapper for thousand of years.Solely the brief interval comets like COMET HALLEY,Keep throughout the orbit of pluto.
WHEN THEY ARE NEAR TO THE SUN,COMETS HAVE SEVERAL DISTINCT PARTS:
👉NUCLEUS – composed of rock,mud and frozen gases,comparatively steady and stable;
👉COMA – the coma is made because the comet warms up and is usually 1000 instances bigger than the nucleus.The coma and the nucleus collectively kinds the pinnacle of the comet.
👉HYDROGEN CLOUD – surrounding the coma there’s an invisible layer of hydrogen referred to as hydrogen cloud.It has a irregular form becoz it’s distorted by photo voltaic wind.This cloud will get larger because the comet approaches the solar.
👉DUST TAIL – it all the time faces to the solar.This half is best to see becoz it displays the daylight.The mud tail is usually curved becoz the comet is shifting in its orbit on the identical pace that the mud is shifting away.
LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST..
👉ION TAIL – made up of electrically charged fuel molecules equivalent to carbondioxide,nitrogen,water which might be pushed away from nucleus by solarwind.
NOW LET ME TELL YOU FEW INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT COMETS:
🔥COMETS COME FROM KUIPER BELT(it’s close to pluto) AND OORT CLOUD(it’s so far-off from the solar tht we’ve got by no means seen it).
🔥THERE ARE MILLIONS OF COMETS,AND THEY ARE ALL ORBITING THE SUN.
🔥TRAVELLING THROUGH A COMETS’S TAIL IS NOT DANGEROUS.
🔥THE WORD COMET COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD KOMETES,IT MEANS LONG HAIR.
🔥THE MOST FAMOUS COMET OF ALL TIME IS HALLEY’S COMET.
THAT’S IT FOR NOW..!
