Rosetta: Comet Landing

On November the 12th, millions of miles from Earth, a spacecraft will make history by attempting to land on an icy rock nearly three-miles across, hurtling through space at 41,000 miles per hour!

An international team of scientists will work around the clock to make sure the orbiter Rosetta, and lander Philae, will survive the journey to accomplish their mission.

If successful, Rosetta and Philae could help peer into our past and unlock secrets from our very origins.

To Catch a Comet

In deep space billions of kilometers from Earth, orbiter Rosetta travels towards an icy rock that hurtles through space at tens of thousands of kilometers per hour. Rosetta has been in space for ten years, but in the next few days she will do something no other spacecraft has ever attempted — land on the volatile surface of a comet as it flies around the sun.
