Rendezvous with a Comet:  Rendezvous with a Comet Challenger Learning Center Colorado Springs Comet Scenario:  Comet Scenario Students become a team of scientists and engineers acting as astronauts and mission specialists on a daring exploration of comets. Their goal will be to successfully plot a rendezvous course with a comet, launch a probe, and collect scientific data on the object. Why Study Comets?:  Why Study Comets? Comets are the oldest most primitive objects in the solar system. They are remnants of a nebula that formed our solar system. Studying comets may help to gather information on the beginning of our solar system. Famous Comets:  Famous Comets Comet Hale-Bopp Comet Halley Comet West Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 Comet Tempel-Tuttle Comet Encke Comet Wild 2 Stardust Mission:  Stardust Mission Stardust was launched in February 1999 to rendezvous with comet Wild 2 in January 2004. The spacecraft successfully collected cometary dust using an aerogel grid. The return capsule, with the samples, will land in the desert of Utah in January of 2006. (Your simulated mission will closely parallel the actual Stardust Mission.)
