.... Detailed study of actual cometary bodies, what they are made of and how they evolve, requires close-up investigation by spacecraft. Prior to the investigation of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko by the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission (Grady et al. 2018 this issue), there had been close...

... of discoveries of new extra-solar planetary systems. Before too long, if all goes to plan, we have the promise of new insights into Titan and somewhat later the first proper investigation into a comet with the Rosetta mission of the European Space Agency. These are, of course, early days and many surprises...
