Rosetta Instruments

Rosetta Spacecraft

The Rosetta design is based on a box-type central structure (2.8 m x 2.1 m x 2.0 m) on which all subsystems and payload equipment are mounted.
Two solar panels, with a combined area of 64m2 , stretch out to 14 m in length.
The total span from tip to tip is 32 m.

Rosetta Instruments

The spacecraft carries 11 instruments in the orbiter and 10 in the Philae Lander.

On the Rosetta Orbiter:
Remote sensing: OSIRIS, ALICE, VIRTIS, MIRO
Composition analysis: ROSINA, COSIMA, MIDAS
Nucleus large-scale structure: CONSERT
