Cometa 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko

Scientists at the European Space Agency (ESA) have constructed a model of icy comet using photographs taken in space by robot “Philae” – and 80 of them will be printed the Form 1 printer.

Rosetta makes first detection of molecular nitrogen at a comet / Rosetta / Space Science / Our Activities / ESA

Rosetta has made the first detection of molecular nitrogen at a comet. The results provide clues about the temperature environment in which Comet formed. comet: ESA/Rosetta/NavCam – CC BY-SA IGO

Philae lander wakes up on surface of comet after hibernating for 7 months

Reconstructing Philae’s double jump. Initially, Philae rotates slowly during the descent to Agilkia. Collided with a cliff 45 minutes later, flying for over an hour, bouncing once again and coming to a stop a few metres away, a few minutes later. Latter positions represent preliminary and approximate locations only.

Silent since its last call to mothership Rosetta seven months ago, the Philae lander is facing conditions on Comet from which it is unlikely to recover.

"The orbit of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and its approximate location around perihelion, the closest the comet gets to the Sun. The positions of the planets are correct for 13 August 2015." (rosetta, esa (July 13, 2015; updated August 7, 2015))

Patches of water ice likely speckle the surface of Rosetta's comet, according to observations newly released from the European spacecraft. The orbiter spotted 120 bright spots that were at least a few meters in size.

Final place? Panorama around Philae on P67 by ÇIVA, annotated by Emily Lakdawalla.  After 1st touchdown, in air 1 hour 50 minutes. During that time, travelled about 1 km at a speed of 38 cm/s. Then, a smaller hop, travelling at about 3 cm/s, third and final landing seven minutes later.

The Philae team scrambled all morning to comprehend the initially confusing status of the lander, and the picture is much clearer today. Speaking of which, there are lots more pictures!

More than 100 terraced structures on the comet's surface and parallel layers clearly visible on exposed cliffs, walls and cavities. Sheet-like structures on both halves but different characteristics = did not develop on the same body. Earlier missions to comet Tempel 1 and Wild 2 had already revealed the layered, onion-like structure of these celestial bodies.

Rosetta and the Rubber Duck: first ever probe landing on comet - The Rosetta spacecraft, launched by the European Space Agency  in 2004, has made history as the first ever craft to land a probe on a comet. After a 6.4 billion km journey through space, the ambitious Rosetta mission achieved its most exciting feat to date, as the Philae probe touched down onto the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko at 16:03 GMT on November 12th.
