Scientists have discovered carbon dioxide on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which hints at extreme temperature changes on the comet’s surface.
The Rosetta spacecraft captured images of its final resting place on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko during its end-of-mission crash landing.
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.
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 Rosetta probe has captured images of a burst of light from the comet 67P. The outburst was said to be caused by a landslide.
ESA has released a video of the Rosetta probe’s two-year journey around the comet 67P.
