    Water Detected in Interstellar Comet 2I/Borisov

    Comets are thought to be repositories of primitive, unaltered matter left over from the birth of the Solar System.This makes studies of cometary volatile materials powerful for understanding the physical and chemical processes occurring during planet formation.
    “The discovery of the interstellar comet 2I/Borisov provides an opportunity to sample the volatile composition of a comet that is unambiguously from outside our own Solar System, providing constraints on the physics and chemistry of other protostellar disks,” said Dr. Adam McKay of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and American University and colleagues.

    I guess no one found this interesting. I guess black holes are more interesting.
