Comets

What happens when a comet full of 'volatiles' comes to close to the sun? The volatiles ignite, creating a long gaseous tail. Are there differences between meteors and comets? Leading scientists and CG graphics help differentiate the two celestial bodies. This clip could be a great way to start a space science unit or used to answer some difficult questions regarding asteroids and comets.
