Cliffs of the Comet
The Churyumov-Gerasimenko Comet is moving 83,885mph with a rotation period of 12.4 hours. Launched in March 2004 Rosetta caught it August 2014 and put the Philae lander on the surface. Rosetta will stay with the comet as it moves around the Sun then heads for Jupiter. Thank you European Space Agency for the Rosetta Robotic Spacecraft’s incredible and historic accomplishments. Thank you Stuart Atkinson for processing the images from Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko that were such an inspiration.
