Comets are cosmic objects in the solar system orbiting around the sun. They were born alongside with the solar system four and a half billion years ago. In ancient times, a comet in the sky was considered as a sign of approaching disaster. Their appearance in heaven was often mistaken for signs of the gods. That’s why people back then were really afraid of these objects. However, later science was finally able to authoritatively explain what are the comets, and the public fear turned into interest.
Comets have a tail only when they come fairly close to the Sun. It is caused by heat and evaporation from exposure to sunlight. The comet’s nucleus accounts for up to 90 percent of its mass. At the beginning of the 20th century, the bright tail of Halley’s comet was visible in the sky with the naked eye. But during 2021, another comet made a big fuss in the press.
Recently the media was buzzing about the biggest comet ever discovered by humans. Called in honor of its discoverers, the Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet was definitely one of the most exciting discoveries for the scientific world in recent years, but it also raises a lot of questions.
