Comets Vs Earth: A History Trivia! - Quiz

Comets have raised the alarm and have as well installed fear into humans since their first fighting. They're referred to as hairy stars which carry with them a look and shape resembling fiery swords which to a lot of people were considered and seen as bearers of bad omen or omens of dooms. Discoveries, however, have made it known that though comets may have taken life away through cataclysmic impacts, they're probably as well responsible for the improvement of life by supplying Earth with vital molecules.
