Abstract

ISO performed a large variety of observing programmes on comets, asteroids and zodiacal light-covering about 1% of the archived observations-with a surprisingly rewarding scientific return. Outstanding results were related to the exceptionally bright comet Hale-Bopp and to ISO's capability to study in detail the water spectrum in a direct way. But many other results were broadly recognised: Discovery of new molecules in comets, the studies of crystalline silicates, the work on asteroid surface mineralogy, results from thermophysical studies of asteroids, a new determination of the asteroid number density in the main-belt and last but not least, the investigations on the spatial and spectral features of the zodiacal light.
