comment How are stellar elemental abundances quoted?
@Py-ser I already did in my original post of the question. To quote myself, "Close to the bottom of page 4 of this article (marked as page 164 in the upper left corner)"

@Py-ser, no the equations are not numbered. It's an inline equation to boot.

comment How do scientists know that a rock found on Earth came from Mars?
As a sidenote, if you go to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., you can actually touch a fragment of a meteorite believed to be from Mars.

My question wasn't how to gauge whether the encounter with comet would affect instrument quality, but whether changing the orbit itself will affect the spacecrafts' ability to fulfil their primary missions in relation to Mars.

comment What is the difference between a dwarf spheroidal galaxy and a globular cluster?
This is incorrect. There are many so-called "satellite" galaxies that orbit the Milky Way without orbiting the Local Group's center. Check out this Wikipedia article for a list: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Milky_Way%27s_satellite_galaxies

comment Is a wavy path possible for a shooting star?
The meteor that the OP observed was in Earth's atmosphere; other planets won't be affecting the meteor's trajectory in such a case, while Earth's atmosphere will have a significant effect.
