ESA's Rosetta probe captured images that could prove that there are landslides on the surface of comet 67P. The changing weather, geologic process and mechanical effects of spinning are some of the reasons cited that's causing erosion.
ESA' Rosetta comet hunter mission officially ended last Sept. 30. The agency recently released the final data collected by the spacecraft including photos of the comet during Rosetta's descent.
Scientists have discovered carbon dioxide on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which hints at extreme temperature changes on the comet’s surface.
A new study suggests that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which was explored by the Rosetta spacecraft, is relatively a newcomer in the inner solar system.
The Rosetta mission team has finally released the last batch of images of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken by the spacecraft.
After the Rosetta mission is over, The European Space Agency is looking at launching new missions, including two smaller comet proposals and probes to Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and the sun.
The Rosetta spacecraft captured images of its final resting place on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko during its end-of-mission crash landing.
Rosetta's colorful 12-year journey are immortalized in ESA's Rosetta Multimedia Library where all the images captured by the spacecraft's camera are stored. Here are the most viewed and highly rated photographs taken by Rosetta.
During its exploration of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the Rosetta probe detected magnetic field oscillations that were later converted into sound. As the probe prepares for its finale, the comet sings a new song.
ESA's Rosetta mission will formally end on Sept. 30. A collision maneuver will be executed that will send Rosetta to free fall into the comet.
Europe’s Rosetta spacecraft will go out with a bang – or rather, a crash – on the surface of a comet it has followed faithfully for two years.
ESA's Rosetta comet chaser will be switched off and will crash to its death on Sept. 30.
Astronomers identified mechanism behind the outbursts in the surface of the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko observed by the Rosetta spacecraft
The European Space Agency (ESA) will change the orbital configuration of its comet-chaser Rosetta on Sept. 29 to send the spacecraft to its death through an impact to comet 67P n Sept. 30.
