Edmond Halley didn't discover a comet, but he did research, and he published papers in astronomy and many other fields. Russian Czar Peter the Great liked him as a dining and drinking companion, and King William III put this civilian in charge of a Royal Navy ship. But how did he get a comet named for him?

Every 75 years or so a very special member of the Solar System swoops close to the Sun, becoming visible in our skies like a cosmic ghost. Find out about Halley’s Comet, the most famous comet of all.
