SPACE MISSIONS TO THE NUCLEI OF COMETS — THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING THE COSMOGONY OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM

К. І. Чурюмов

Abstract


Some results obtained by space missions to the nuclei of some periodiccomets, namely the mission “Ice”, “Vega-1” and “Vega-2”, “Suisei”, “Sakigake”, “Giotto”, “Deep Space”, “Stardust”, “Deep Impact”, “Epoxy”, “Next” and the program and the scientific results of the mission “Rosetta” in the eight yearsof its flight to the nucleus of the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

Keywords


nuclei of comets; remote space sensing.
