Simulcast: March 10 1999, 11:00 - 11:30 am Pacific (2:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern)
Comets are so cool, they're actually icy! As these cosmic snowballs approach the Sun, they turn
into the beautiful celestial bodies we can see from Earth. Now, for the first time ever, a hi-te
ch NASA mission will capture comet dust samples and bring them
back to Earth. The samples will give us new information about comets and help us understand the
origins of our solar system. Take a journey with NASA into space as we explore the mysteries of
comets and the secrets of our distant past.
This 30-minute simulcast is now available as three Quicktime movies. A Quicktime 3.0 player
is required to run the movies.
