Go Back

Crack in Hapi This OSIRIS narrow-angle camera image shows part of a large fracture running through the Hapi region in Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s neck. At the location of the right arrow, the fracture appears as a chain of pits. This image has been resized to 40% of the original image release (which appears to have been enlarged by 500%).
