Cecilia Tubiana is a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen (Germany). Her main research interest is comets. She is part of the team that designed, planned, and commanded the Rosetta OSIRIS comet images.
Rosetta is a European Space Agency mission with contributions from its member states and NASA. Operating such a complex mission with its 11 instruments and Philae lander is a success story in itself, but Rosetta’s greatest success is the science it delivered.
