We now know that ice in the solar system resides in at least three distinct reservoirs, known as the Oort cloud, the Kuiper belt and the main-belt comets. Dr. Jewitt will discuss the nature, distribution and significance of the ice, highlighting its connection to the formation epoch, in a style intended to be sweeping and broadly accessible.
