Rosetta’s comet is ‘remarkably non-magnetic’

last weekHealth : The Checkup

Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the object that the European Space Agency's Rosetta orbiter is currently studying, doesn't seem to have any magnetic activity. That suggests that magnetic pull wasn't an important factor in the formation of our solar system's comets and planets. The findings were published Tuesday in Science.Read full article >>
