This revised version areas a special emphasis on the entire new effects from ground-based, satellites and house missions -- detection of molecule H2 and advised emission traces of OH for the 1st time; discovery of X-rays in comets; saw variety in chemical composition between comets; the puzzle of the fidelity of spin temperature; the well-established mineralogy of cometary airborne dirt and dust; huge theoretical modeling performed for figuring out the saw results; the similarity within the mineralogy of airborne dirt and dust in circumstellar shell of stars, comets, meteorites, asteroids and IDPs, therefore indicating the regular dating among them.
