Astronomers have discovered a star that carried out a stellar hit-and-run 70,000 years ago... and our solar system was the victim.
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.
