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.
European Space Agency scientists have released what it sounded like when Philae made its first touchdown on the dusty surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
The Philae comet-lander has found traces of organic molecules on the surface of the comet 67P.
The orbiting Rosetta spacecraft photographed the path of the Philae lander as it descended, bounced and drifted into a ditch. Continue reading →
Two days after its historic touchdown on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the Rosetta mission's Philae lander is rushing to complete its core science goals before its batteries run flat. Continue reading →
