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.
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.
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.
ESA's comet chaser, Rosetta found complex organic molecules from dust grains surrounding a comet. An important discovery just before it runs out of fuel and crash to its death.
A few days before the Rosetta spacecraft’s end of mission, the probe’s high-resolution camera has spotted the long-lost Philae lander in a dark crack on Comet 67P.
ESA’s Rosetta probe has captured images of a burst of light from the comet 67P. The outburst was said to be caused by a landslide.
