Wow! Interstellar Traveler, Comet 2i Borisov.

This story has it all, if you like outer space:  galaxies, other worlds, interstellar travel (between stars, over millions of years!), exploration, discovery, it’s all here. 

Only the second known comet to travel to our solar system from elsewhere in the Milky Way.  

How DO they study comets?  WHO studies comets?  How do the coordinate and work together?  What do they know?  What DON’T they know?  You’ll get enough answers to be spurred to further reading, like I was.

More on the comet and the guy who discovered the comet, HERE.

More on the person interviewed from Belfast for this podcast, HERE.

And the podcast itself?  Worth every minute.  Take about 10.  #worthit
