Issue No.02 - March/April (2003 vol.5)
pp: 4-8
ABSTRACT
<p>A chunk of ice and rock 10 kilometers wide drifted through space. As part of leftover cosmic debris on the outskirts of a solar system billions of years old, the rock circled until a passing planet's gravity nudged it off course just enough to trace a new orbit, one that periodically carried it closer to its central star. Solar radiation washed over the rock, setting it aglow.</p>
