Our first interstellar comet visitor, 2I/Borisov, has already provided clues to the diversity in composition of planetary systems!
As the field of exoplanet atmospheric science rapidly moves towards understanding these fascinating worlds as complex, three-dimensional entities, today’s paper explores how we can find non-uniform cloud cover on exoplanets using JWST!
Ammonium salts have been discovered on Comet 67P! This discovery helps solve a big mystery about the nitrogen content on the comet, which was previously measured to be lower than expected.
