Rosetta!

Saturday,  08/08/15  08:16 PM



The NY Times celebrates the one-year anniversary of the ESA's Rosetta spacecraft encountering comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.  Rosetta dropped the Philae lander onto its surface in November and has been following the comet as it swings closer to the sun.  This photo essay is incredible, a must see.  The gases emitted by the comet stream away from the sun in the "solar wind", and provide an eerie backdrop.

Imagine looking out the window of your spaceship and seeing this!
