The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission captured the imagination of the world in 2014, as it rendezvoused with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and deployed a lander Philae, to its surface.
Join the European Space Agency’s Professor Mark McCaughrean as he gives a behind-the-scenes view of the mission, its history, the 10 year journey to reach the comet, and the exciting events that have been taking place there.
Explore the challenges and risks involved in the mission and discover what scientists are finding as they unlock this treasure chest of information about the formation of our solar system, the origins of water and perhaps even life on Earth.
