The story of Rosetta and comet 67P is continuing


The guys at ESA have created a series of nice animations to depict the Rosetta mission with its Philae comet lander. As you already know the Philae lander was not able to hold on to a given spot on the comet 67P and it bounced a couple of times on it.

Fortunately the lander still works and was able to send over images and data to the Rosetta probe. The probe is also accompanying the comet on its journey and it is the first mission to have ever landed a robot on a comet and to also follow that comet around.

Here are some images from comet 67P (via ESA Flickr + Flickr Forum):
