Latest 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko Stories
The ESA's Soundcloud page gives a voice to space with their super cool sound clips from comets, rocket launches, and landings.
Say what?! Rosetta's comet appears to be made up entirely of...pebbles.
The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission was designed to do just that and visiting Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has led to the first-ever discovery of nitrogen emanating from a comet, according to a new report in the journal Science.
No, comet 67p/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is not about to explode or disintegrate. But as it steadily gets nearer to the Sun the comet’s jets are getting more and more active and they’re putting on quite a show for the orbiting Rosetta spacecraft!
The search for the Philae lander on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P/C-G) has been unsuccessful, and ESA officials will now wait to hear from the probe to confirm its location.
Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko has five basic but diverse categories of terrain type, as well as 19 distinct geomorphological boundaries, according to early data obtained by the ESA’s Rosetta mission and published in a special edition of the journal Science.
A special issue of the journal Science, to be published Jan. 23, 2015, reveals details about the shape, evolution and lifespan of comet 67P-Churyumov/Gerasimenko.
Efforts to discover the exact location of the Rosetta mission’s Philae lander have proven unsuccessful, and European Space Agency scientists fear that the probe might have become covered by dust falling back onto the surface of the comet it currently calls home.
It's getting more sunlight than they originally thought it would. Rejoice!
Terrestrial water most likely did not come from comets like 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, meaning that the H2O found on Earth was most likely brought here by asteroids.
