Astronomers have found a unique object that appears to be made of inner solar system material from the time of Earth's formation, billions of years ago. Observations show that C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) is the first object to be discovered on a long-period cometary orbit that has the characteristics of a pristine inner solar system asteroid.

"We've found the first rocky comet, and we are looking for others," said the ESO's Olivier Hainaut. "Depending how many we find, we will know whether the giant planets danced across the Solar System when they were young, or if...
Astronomers have spotted a tailless “Manx” comet that appears to have been knocking around the galaxy since the Solar System was formed.
Originally published on Solar Love. Concept by US has launched a complete solar power and energy storage solution that provides 17.28 kWh of energy storage along with a solar power system of 5, 10, or 15 kW. The product is called the Powerstation 247 and Concept by US says it is UL certified. Show More Summary
An answer from our friends at Quora.
Astronomers have found a first-of-its-kind tailless comet whose composition may offer clues into long-standing questions about the solar system’s formation and evolution, according to research published on Friday in the journal Science Advances. The so-called “Manx” comet, named...
I spoke to the band about aliens and crystals and sweat that literally melts guitars, which means I personally think this interview rules but also means you might not want to take my word for it and check them out for yourself.
In a paper to be published today in the journal Science Advances, lead author Karen Meech of the University of Hawai`i's Institute for Astronomy and her colleagues conclude that C/2014 S3 (PANSTARRS) formed in the inner Solar System at the same time as the Earth itself, but was ejected at a very early stage. read more
The tiny-tailed comet C/2014 S3 is a preserved piece of the original material that made the rocky planets, not a dirty snowball like its cometary siblings
A first-of-its-kind space rock filled with pristine material from the formation of the Earth itself has returned to the inner solar system, after billions of years in the cosmic boondocks. And it could help us piece together our planet’s origin story. Read more...
In an attempt to boost the relatively neglected rooftop solar power market, the western Indian state of Gujarat has announced attractive subsidies for homeowners looking to set up rooftop solar power systems. The Gujarat Energy Developer...Show More Summary
