ESA Euronews: Rosetta continues to surprise


The comet-chasing mission of ESA spacecraft Rosetta and its robotic lander Philae has grabbed attention from around the world with its suspenseful adventures. The science behind the mission is just as fascinating, and could help unlock secrets on how our solar system formed billions of years ago.

In 2004, Rosetta the spacecraft and Philae the robot set out on a mission to catch a distant comet called 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

What they are now doing over a decade later is re-writing, in surprising new ways, our understanding of how the solar system formed.

  1. This is so ridiculous to assume that the comet is made of ice. There is a lack of evidence of any water at all. There is an electro chemical process from the interaction of charged particles and the electrically charged comet. The comet even has an anode and cathode. Does anyone else get how electrically charged bodies are effected by streaming plasma? It's like these scientists are too bent on proving their dirty snowballs theory to interpret the obvious. The universe is electric.
