Rosetta's comet: In the shadow of the coma
This NAVCAM mosaic comprises four individual images taken on 20 November from a distance of 30.8 km from the centre of Comet 67P/C-G. The image resolution is 2.6 m/pixel, so each original 1024 x 1024 pixel ...
Rosetta Comet Landing in 'Thud' and 3D
(Phys.org) —A 3D image shows what it would look like to fly over the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image was generated from data collected by the Rosetta Lander Imaging System (ROLIS) ...
Scientists record thud of Philae's comet landing
Scientists have released a brief recording of the sound that Europe's space probe Philae made when it became the first to land on a comet last week.
Rosetta continues into its full science phase
With the Philae lander's mission complete, Rosetta will now continue its own extraordinary exploration, orbiting Comet 67P/Churymov–Gerasimenko during the coming year as the enigmatic body arcs ever closer ...
Rosetta's comet looks weird in decade-old Hubble model
Okay, let's take a deep breath about Rosetta and remember just how far we've come since the mission arrived at its target comet in August. Lately we've been focused on reporting on the Philae landing, but ...
The Rosetta lander detects organic matter
Scientists working with data sent back by the now-slumbering Philae lander have announced the discovery of organic molecules on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. ...
Comet probe 'sniffed' organic molecules, early data show
Mankind's first-ever probe of a comet found traces of organic molecules and a surface much harder than imagined, scientists said Tuesday of initial sample data from robot lab Philae.
What Philae did in its 60 hours on Comet 67P
The drama of Philae's slow fall, bounce and unfortunate slide into hibernation was one of the most thrilling science stories of a generation. But what in its short 60 hours of life on Comet 67P did it achieve?
OSIRIS spots Philae drifting across the comet
These incredible images show the breathtaking journey of Rosetta's Philae lander as it approached and then rebounded from its first touchdown on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on 12 November 2014.
