41. Rosetta Was Here

(Web Page; Thu Jan 31 17:03:00 CST 2013)

Doug included this image in his blog entry below but I thought it was so amazing that I wanted to write about it too. What you're seeing here is a view out the airplane window as Rosetta flew by Mars. The Philae lander, whose CIVA cam...

Description: This amazing view was captured by the CIVA camera on Rosetta's Philae lander just four minutes before its closest approach to Mars on February 25, 2007. The spacecraft was only 1,000 kilometers above the planet.

42. Rosetta heard from after flyby

(Web Page; Mon Apr 23 02:01:00 CDT 2012)

Rosetta contacted Earth on schedule following its flyby of asteroid (2867) Steins at 18:38 UTC today, according to a story on the ESA website. Data downlink hasn't started yet -- the spacecraft is still gathering data as it flies away -...

43. More than 1000 Rosetta NavCam images released!

(Web Page; Wed Apr 29 11:50:00 CDT 2015)

Today the European Space Agency released a ton of NavCam images, taken as the spacecraft approached and then entered orbit at the comet. You can see the comet in all its sunlit and shadowy moods. The new release includes images taken fro...

44. A Rosetta OSIRIS picture of comet 67P that's only hours old

(Web Page; Fri Dec 11 10:30:00 CST 2015)

Almost all of the photos of comet 67P that you have ever seen on this website have come from Rosetta's workhorse navigational camera. Images from the science camera, OSIRIS, have been few and far between, and are generally released long ...

Description: ESA announced today a new website at which the OSIRIS team will now be releasing images on a regular basis -- at least one per week -- and they will be recent. Even better news, all OSIRIS data taken through September 16, 2014 has been handed to ESA and its release is expected next week.

45. Science plans for Rosetta's Earth flyby

46. Rosetta is homing in on Earth

(Web Page; Sun Mar 13 16:57:00 CDT 2016)

Heads up! ESA's Rosetta spacecraft is approaching for its last flyby of Earth, on Friday, November 13. It is now close enough that its OSIRIS high-resolution camera can resolve the Moon (and presumably Earth as well). Here's that photo o...

49. Lutetia in Rosetta's sights

(Web Page; Sat Sep 19 08:55:00 CDT 2015)

It's unimpressive now, but in a few weeks the pinpoint of light at the center of this photo of a starry sky will loom very large to Rosetta's cameras. The image below is Rosetta's first view of its next target, asteroid 21 Lutetia. I ...
