Close up detail focusing on a smooth region on the ‘base’ of the ‘body’ section of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image was taken by Rosetta’s Onboard Scientific Imaging System (OSIRIS) on August 6, 2014.
Following a decade-long journey that spanned more than six billion kilometers through space, the ESA’s Rosetta probe has arrived at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, officially making it the first mission to ever successfully complete such a rendezvous.
After a journey of more than six billion kilometers through the Solar System, the ESA’s Rosetta probe is closing in on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
Surface structures are becoming visible in new images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken by the scientific imaging system OSIRIS onboard the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft.
New photos of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko obtained by ESA’s Rosetta Probe reveal the comet has an extremely irregular shape and is likely a contact binary, meaning that it is comprised of two distinct parts that gravitate towards each other and ultimately form a single odd-looking body.
After a 10-year journey that has clocked up more than 6 billion kilometers, ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft is rapidly closing in on its destination comet, and ESA is inviting you along for the ride.
UltraFlex Solar Arrays Will Provide All Electrical Power for InSight Lander ARLINGTON, Va., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ATK (NYSE: ATK) received a contract from Lockheed Martin
Three NASA science instruments aboard the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft, which is set to become the first to orbit a comet and land a probe on its nucleus, are beginning observations and sending science data back to Earth.
A spacecraft from Earth is about to do something no spacecraft has ever done before: orbit a comet and land on its surface.
NASA and its international partners now have the go-ahead to begin construction on a new Mars lander, after it completed a successful Mission Critical Design Review on Friday.
