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.
