Rosetta Comet Orbiter - ** Pictures ** Live Science conf ** Magnets and Lightning ** Mass of comet 67P ** Cooking Comets ** Dusty Iceberg ** ?B
I want to use this thread to highlight news from the Rosetta comet mission.

Ten years ago the European Space Agency ( ESA ) launched the Rosetta comet chaser to rendezvous with comet 67P, go into orbit around it and land a probe on its surface.

Pictures - There are hundreds of images from Rosetta, this post will always point to the most recent NAVCAM or OSIRIS picture. Updated several times per week.

When the Rosetta mission is complete we will know so much more about comets, their composition and formation. Comets have been a cause of fear and fascination throughout human history, within the next few months many long standing mysteries will be solved.

Those have now been completed and as of today Rosetta is just 4700km from the comet with just 3 small burns left in the rendezvous part of the mission. Rosetta is now closing with the comet at only 20mph ( 9m/s )

Thanks! This is going to be quite a slow burning thread though. I have got few videos, diagrams and reports to post to catch up on the last month or so and then updates as and when something happens.

The landing isn't scheduled until November and the whole mission should carry on for a year after that.

... name of comet and where is it now? ...
.
 Quoting: Wisconsin


The comet is called 67P. It is a periodic comet with a 6.45 year orbit. It was discovered by Klim Ivanovych Churyumov on a photograph taken by Svetlana Ivanova Gerasimenko so the comet is also referred to as comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko which is a bit of a mouthful for me so I will mostly stick to 67P.

It is currently 403,592,136km away, 15 days to rendezvous.

I haven't had time to sort through all the updates from the last 6 weeks, but all the interesting stuff will get posted here ( and stuff copied from that older thread ). The latest current image from comet 67P is this nice animation ESA have put together.

Back in mid June the Rosetta team took the unusual step of asking for amateur astronomers to assist in imaging comet 67P. Amateur astronomers now how access to excellent robotic telescopes [link to www.itelescope.net] and ESA needed as many images of comet 67P as possible to assess how active it was.

Here is a collection of some of the images

and the background on the project

The final Far Approach Trajectory ( FAT, yes they made that up ) burn will happen today.

The burn should last around 10 minutes and reduce Rosetta's relative velocity by 5 m/s ( 10mph ) It will then be moving towards 67P at just 4 m/s.

Rosetta is currently 4126km from 67P, 14 days to rendezvous.

Something strange happened a month ago to comet 67P. It had been active, producing a coma and tail as you can see in this image from the VLT.

[link to blogs.esa.int]

Then it became quiet again, nobody seems sure why but it could be good news as it will allow Rosetta to observe the comet waking up again.

The last of the far approach burns completed today. There are now just two small burns to go in August before Rosetta is manoeuvred into orbit around 67P.

Here is a nice visualisation tool ( eye candy ) for seeing where Rosetta is now in relation to the rest of the solar system. If it doesn't run smoothly then you don't have a webgl browser and videocard.

If the mission goes as planned then the highlight will be the landing of the Philae probe in November this year. This will only be the fifth extra-terrestrial body we have soft landed on after the Moon, Venus, Mars and Titan.

This is the Philae that that the lander is named after.

You filmed a contrail. Comet 67p is an incredibly dim periodic comet which you need an extremely powerful telescope to see.

I thought you might be be going for it with the itelescope.net telescopes, like you did with the asteroid.

I know the guy who shot those images in that video. It's something I'd like to do if I had more time available, but finding that asteroid depleted all of my reserves of itelescope time. They're only now starting to replenish, but it was worth it, even if it never got confirmation from other observers.
