Vagabonds in the Solar System
The digital show “Vagabonds in the Solar System” invites you on a fascinating journey to the asteroids and comets of our solar system. From the Asteroid Belt to the Kuiper Belt, astronomers have launched several space missions for the exploration of these celestial objects, in an effort to answer important questions, related to the birth of the Solar system, the origin of Earth’s water and the presence of the first complex organic molecules, that proved so crucial to the emergence of life on our planet. Equally important, astronomers study these objects trying to figure our possible ways to deflect potentially dangerous impact events in the future.
