Icy Bodies

Comet simulation
Comets originate from deep space objects known as icy bodies, made mostly out of water ice, ammonia and solid carbon dioxide. Here in these images dry ice twirls in water like comets move through space; ever- changing, fitful, and slowly dying until only fading clouds and memory remain.
