Given its pristine nature, they may preserve valuable and unique information on thechemical and physical processes that took place in theearly solar system, and that may be occurring in the formation of other planetary systems. They might have even played a very important role in the origin of life on Earth.

Once the book has been published (anticipated publication date May ), the download option will be disabled, so authors should take advantage of the. The book does explain the basic difference between comets, asteroids and meteors. Also the basic different classes of meteor composition are discussed. There are some good pictures of a few comets and an explanation of the comets head and tail and their revolution around the sun. Deep space comets and nearer spaced comets are discussed/5(6).

Comets are usually divided into two groups determined by the type of orbit they have. The first type of comet is the short period comet. Short period comets have orbits of less than two hundred years. Some have very short orbits of just a few years. These types of comets originate from the Kuiper belt.

The second type of comet is the long. Comets, Meteors, and Asteroids. by Seymour Simon. We'd love you to buy this book, and hope you find this page convenient in locating a place of purchase.

Objects smaller than this are classified as micrometeoroids or space dust. Most are fragments from comets or asteroids, whereas others are collision impact debris ejected from bodies. Meteoroids are objects in space that range in size from dust grains to small asteroids.

Think of them as “space rocks." When meteoroids enter Earth’s atmosphere (or that of another planet, like Mars) at high speed and burn up, the fireballs or “shooting stars” are called meteors.

When a meteoroid survives a trip through the atmosphere and hits the ground, it’s called a meteorite. COMETS, METEORS, AND ASTEROIDS would be a perfect addition to an elementary school science lesson on outer space.

Students could create a Venn diagram detailing the similarities and differences in comets, meteors, and asteroids after reading the book. Another lesson to go with COMETS, METEORS, AND ASTEROIDS would be a shoebox diorama.
