Varied terrain on comet 67P
In a photo captured on October 19 from a distance of 10 kilometers, Rosetta spies a wide variety of different terrains on the comet. In some places the comet appears to be a coherent block, crossed with long fissures; in other places, this material appears to break up into boulders. Yet other areas seem smooth, with what appear to be collapse pits.
