  3. Rosetta and Philae primed to uncover cometary secrets

    Publishing date:

    March 3, 2005

    Rosetta and Philae will be swinging past our planet on Tuesday 13 November to gain a slingshot assist from Earth’s gravity that will put them on course to rendezvous with their target comet in 2014. At the end of September, the Scientific Operations and Navigation Centre at the Toulouse Space Centre took advantage of a slack period in the mission schedule preceding this flyby to check out the science experiments it will be controlling.

    For certain, the Rosetta mission that ended last September with the orbiter impacting the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a controlled descent will mark the history of space exploration. Having achieved numerous firsts, collected a wealth of data and made major discoveries, this ambitious mission—a veritable space odyssey, given the length of its journey and the operational obstacles it had to overcome— has indisputably been a huge success.

  18. Rosetta still listening out for Philae

    Publishing date:

    February 12, 2016

    After its trailblazing successful landing on 12 November 2014, Philae spent two and a half days collecting in-situ measurements and observations on the surface of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, a first for science and a notable contribution to ESA’s record-setting mission. Despite the lander’s continuing silence and uncertainties about its current position, there is still a chance of restoring contact between Philae and Rosetta in the months ahead.
