Choi, Won Suk: Comet 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Comet is one of the constituent parts of the solar system. The comet nucleus consists of mostly of ice and dust, and the size ranges from kilometers to several tens of kilometers. Most comets have highly eccentric elliptical orbits, one side of the orbit closer to the sun, the other farther away from the solar system, and the tail is created by the surface ice and dust evaporating when passing close to the sun.

    A comet has an orbit but can not orbit it forever. It collapses due to an external collision, or it loses its material every time it turns around the sun, so if it orbits for eternity, it will be lost and eventually destroyed. Most of them lose their power and are destroyed by solar gravity, either directly rushing to the sun or evaporating in the wind that gets too close to the sun.

    In Korean words, it is called ‘arrow star’ or ‘tail star’ since it seems like an arrow and has a tail. It is also called ‘guest star’ because it does not always exist in a certain place like a stranger keep wandering.
