51. Rosetta Unearths a "Jewel of the Solar System"

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

I have finally managed to write up my notes from the way-too-early-Saturday-morning press conference on the first results of Rosetta's encounter with asteroid

52. Rosetta's Lutetia navigation campaign complete

(Web Page; Tue Aug 25 15:01:00 CDT 2015)

Rosetta's most important job over the last few months has been to observe how the position of asteroid (21) Lutetia shifts against the background of fixed (fixed, that is, as far as Rosetta can see) stars. In a technique whose heritage c...

53. Rosetta's just a day away from Steins and now on target

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

There are new Rosetta images of Steins, still a faint speck among the background of stars. Here's an animation:ESARosetta approaches SteinsThe Rosetta spacecraft fine-tuned its approach to the asteroid Steins using images from its navig...

55. Rosetta burns for its comet

(Web Page; Sat Jun 15 09:58:00 CDT 2013)

Rosetta -- Europe's comet-chasing spacecraft -- is in the middle of a three-day series of rocket firings that are setting the geometry for its rendezvous with comet 67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko (which I have heard called "Cherry Gerry," fo...

56. Rosetta Earth swingby successful

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

Rosetta appears to have operated flawlessly as it streaked past Earth for its flyby early this morning. Here are a few more gems from the flyby. First is an actual sighting of the Rosetta spacecraft from Earth. Crazy to look up in the s...

57. Rosetta on target, no further rocket firings needed

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

The rocket firing that Rosetta performed yesterday has targeted the spacecraft to within two kilometers of the planned position, an accuracy that the navigation team deems is good enough to cancel the final opportunity for a trajectory c...

59. Three days to Lutetia for Rosetta!

(Web Page; Tue Aug 25 15:13:00 CDT 2015)

On July 10, 2010, at 15:44:56 UTC, the Rosetta spacecraft will fly within 3,162 kilometers of the largest asteroid yet visited by a spacecraft. Named (21) Lutetia, the 132-by-101-by-76-kilometer-diameter body is a puzzle to astronomers, ...

60. Rosetta's Earth flyby successful; and they got pictures too!

(Web Page; Mon Apr 23 02:11:00 CDT 2012)

At 20:57 UTC yesterday, Rosetta passed within 6,000 kilometers of Earth, picking up a gravity assist for a change in speed and direction, routing it onward to -- Earth. It'll be coming back for its last visit in two years; in the meanti...
