8th April 2011 Notes: Water Found on Comets

For the first time scientists have discovered evidence of water on a comet. It has long being believed that comets never get warm enough for ice on the comet to melt. However water in liquid form has now being discovered from samples taken when  a spacecraft took samples directly from a comet back in 2004. This would back the idea that there have to be other worlds out there with water on them.
