    Thanks to the Rosetta space mission to 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, which sought to gain new insights into how our solar system formed by analysing the comet and its behaviour as it approached the Sun, scientists have now determined that a fifth of Earth’s atmosphere likely comes from comets.

    Even after its mission ended, the Rosetta probe is still teaching us a lot about comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

Altwegg) published new results in Science, showing a quantitative link between comets and our planet’s atmosphere.
