To Catch A Comet

Preparing orbiter Rosetta to make history by landing on a comet flying around the sun.


About To Catch A Comet

On November 12, 2014, billions of kilometers from Earth, spacecraft orbiter Rosetta and lander Philae did what no other had dared to attempt - land on the volatile surface of a comet as it zooms around the sun at 67,000 km/hr. The European Space Agency hopes this mission can help peer into our past and unlock secrets of our origins.
