From a distance of 100 kilometers, the European Rosetta mission captured a stunning overall view of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and its strengthening jets of vapor.
Comets are weird. And they're about to get weirder.
Rosetta scientists are scouring comet images in the hope of finding where Philae ended up -- and there's hope the tiny lander might reawaken as soon as May.
Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is shedding its old dusty coat and Europe's Rosetta mission is catching the individual flakes to understand some fascinating cometary dynamics.
Early results from Europe’s ongoing Rosetta comet mission show the icy body, believed to be a remnant from the formation of the solar system, is far more complex and diverse than scientists expected.
Well ... what did you expect? It wasn't going to be GREEN now, was it.
The European mission has discovered that the water locked in Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko doesn't match the water on Earth.
In a lucky twist to the comet lander's bumpy touchdown, it seems Philae may have also done some space acrobatics before settling the right way up.
