On the second anniversary of Rosetta’s conclusion, astronomers look back on what was learnt and what’s still to come
Mass-wasting activities continuously expose fresh ice on a comet’s surface, thus keeping the comet active over long periods
The last installment includes the iconic images of finding lander Philae and the orbiter’s final descent to Comet 67P’s surface
Computer simulations, combined with data from the Rosetta spacecraft, demonstrate that the comet could have been created after the formation of our Solar System
The spacecraft will join lander Philae on the surface of Comet 67P, bringing its 13 year mission to a close
In the three months centred around 67P’s closest approach to the Sun, the spacecraft’s cameras captured 34 outbursts
The team behind the Rosetta mission report exclusively for All About Space on how the comet chaser has solved the mystery of the Solar System
The comet chaser has unexpectedly captured a dramatic eruption that may have been triggered by a landslide
The spacecraft has revealed a surprisingly large region around its host comet devoid of any magnetic field.
Silent since its last call to mother ship seven months ago, the lander is facing conditions on Comet 67P from which it is unlikely to recover
Using the ESA spacecraft’s microwave instrument, scientists have studied the comet’s southern polar regions at the end of their long winter season
A low-speed smash up between two comets gave rise to the distinctive appearance of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
ESA’s spacecraft finds an important piece of information about comets from 67P
Dramatic activity has been witnessed on Comet 67P as it gets ever closer to perihelion
Jets of gas and dust being spat out from Rosetta’s comet have been found to be coming from sinkholes on its surface
Jupiter is home to some gigantic storms but would we be able to actually hear them?
