Comets and the Origin and Evolution of Life.- The Origin of the Atmosphere and of the Oceans.- Cometary Micrometeorites in Planetology, Exobiology, and Early Climatology.- Macromolecules: From Star-Forming Regions to Comets to the Origins of Life.- Impact Delivery of Prebiotic Organic Matter to Planetary Surfaces.- Comets and Prebiotic Organic Molecules on Early Earth.- Impacts and the Early Evolution of Life.- Extraterrestrial Impact Episodes and Archaean to Early Proterozoic (3.8-2.4 Ga) Habitats of Life.- The Contemporary Hazard of Comet Impacts.- The Conditions for Liquid Water in Cometary Nuclei.- Spacecraft Missions to Comets.- Interstellar and Cometary Dust in Relation to the Origin of Life.
This volume considers the role comets may have played in the origins and evolution of life. This is the only book dealing in depth with this subject. It is particularly relevant in light of recent investigations of Halley's comet, of new insights into organic synthesis in meteorites and comets, and of new results of numerical simulations of cometary orbits and impacts on Earth. The book is intended as a comprehensive review of current research.
