Rosetta

Has anyone been following this? Some terrific images of comet 67P/C-G from close quarters. And in 6 days time it gets really exciting as a probe will be released with the intention of landing on the comet's surface. Here's hoping it all goes well. I must say this has so far been a tremendous challenge with stupendous results. YVMV however

Here's a composite courtesy of ESA.

Re: Rosetta

It's mind boggling to think that we have the technology to do this. It never ceases to amaze me that we are so primative yet so advanced at the same time.

You are welcome. Taken from about 7.5km above the surface I think. Plenty more on the link to the ESA blog!

Re: Rosetta

It's amazing that we are able to photograph clearly an object that is so far away but photos of miscreants taken with security cameras from a distance of perhaps 10 metres or less are, in the main, unrecognizable!

(My first post for a very, very long time!)
