...mical compound consisting of three atoms: one of carbon and two of oxygen. At standard temperature and pressure on Earth, carbon dioxide is a gas. In the cold vacuum of space it is a solid; when hit by sunlight, it becomes a gas. Carbon dioxide has been observed in comet comas and tails. Coma * The cloud that forms around a comet's nucleus. This cloud is made by solar wind striking the surface of the nucleus, causing a mixture of gas and dust to form around it. Diamond (C) * A state of carbon in which the atoms are arranged in crystals. Diamond is a solid on Earth and in space. It is believed to be a part...
