AbstractIt is widely accepted that cometary nuclei are composed of a mix of volatile ices and meteoritic materials. In a series of seminal papers F. L. Whipple tried to explain how the irregular internal structure of each nuclei would be able to explain the nongravitational forces, and how the continuous sublimation of the ice species would lead to explain the origin of meteoroid streams. Not essential progress was made until that the approach of a cruise of international spacecrafts to comet 1P/Halley allowed to achieve the first direct view of a cometary nucleus.
