I remember some guy saying "I'm not going to post any videos or ramble about EU going forward here." If you want to talk about electrickery, keep it relevant to Rosetta and comet 67P. This is not a general electrickery thread. Quoting: K Hall
Thanks for the orbital schedule.
I was commenting on EDM or EAM (arc machining) that was part of the conversation as well as the asteroid/comet/planetary formation aspect to this all. It isn't inseparable. The theories are interwoven.
You had just stated - "Asteroid is a meaninglessly vague term here. Many near earth asteroids are extinct comet nuclei and as I have stated several times in this thread there is no distinct line to be drawn between comets and certain classes of asteroid."
And - "The whole point of the Rosetta mission is to understand comet formation and the history of the early solar system."
WBTW was the mission of Dawn to Vesta. It could be stated that the mission to Vesta was not only about asteroids or planetary/solar system formation but cometary as well, for as you say certain asteroids are dead comets. And certain asteroids can become live comets as was discovered last year with the 6-tailed asteroid/comet.
At least the vid I posted was only 13 minutes long. There is an 80 minute one that goes into great detail about EDM and Mars ... if you're interested. It's referenced in the 13 min vid I posted.
