What is a comet? Where does it come from? What is it made of, and how long does it last? Are comets the building blocks from which the planets were formed? Were the fates of the dinosaurs and the origins of humans tied to the wanderings of a comet? Will we experience commentary catastrophes on Earth?

Comet begins with a breathtaking journey through space astride a comet. It probes the myths and portents that comets have given rise to around the world and across the centuries. It traces the scientific enterprise that has been devoted to understanding them, and the rivalries and controversies they have inspired.   Updated with the latest on comets, from 1987 up through the bright new arrival of the Hale-Bopp Comet which appeared in March and April 1997.
