Comets as Water Factories | Space News

Written by sschirott,

In a recent 5-part video compilation, Dr. Franklin Anariba, a specialist in electrochemistry, offered his extensive analysis of several papers from the Rosetta mission to Comet 67P. Among the findings Dr. Anariba discussed was the discovery of electric fields and fast moving electrons close to the comet nucleus, and the evidence that electrochemical processes may be responsible for the production of water molecules in the comet’s coma. In January, science news headlines stated that ESA scientists have observed so-called exposed water ice on the comet surface. However, the term exposed water-ice betrays the ongoing assumption that large amounts of ice exist beneath the exterior of the nucleus. We asked Dr. Anariba for his thoughts on this development with the Rosetta mission.
