Science U

Make Your Own Comet

Season 1 Episode 2 | 1m 40s

What is in a comet? Some scientists call it a "dirty snowball in space". With adult supervision, Science-U campers make their own comets with a mixture of materials that might surprise you. The resulting lump makes a comet tail of melting gases when you hold it up to a lamp in a darkened room.
