Comet spacecraft Featured 29 Jun 2004 Print

Comet spacecraft

Comet exploration spacecraft, computer artwork. The unmanned probe (upper frame) is approaching a comet, a body of ice and dust from the outer parts of the solar system. Comets are studied because they contain material from the early stages of the formation of the solar system. Several probes have been launched to study comets. The Stardust probe has collected samples of dust from Comet Wild-2, and will return to Earth in 2006. The Rosetta probe is another mission to study a comet, and it should reach its target in 2015

Mammoth ivory sculptures Featured 29 Jun 2004 Print

Mammoth ivory sculptures

Mammoth ivory sculptures. Female figures carved from tusks of the woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius). The woolly mammoth was a large, elephant-like mammal with a thick, hairy coat. The tusks of the male woolly mammoth reached 3 metres in length. It lived on the steppes of Siberia and in much of Europe up until about 10, 000 years ago. Woolly mammoths died out as Eurasia warmed up at the end of the last ice age and forests spread across the steppes. These figures, which date from the Palaeolithic period (500, 000-10, 000BC), were found during an archaeological excavation in the village of Kostenki in the Rostov region of Russia
