Caption: Rosetta mission control team in the European Space Agency's (ESA) space operations centre, Darmstadt, Germany. The Rosetta spacecraft was launched in March 2004 on a 10 year mission to study the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. It entered the comet's orbit on the 6th August 2014. It is the first mission designed to land on a comet. Rosetta is carrying instruments to map the comet's surface and probe its core, as well as the Philae lander. Philae is scheduled to land on the comet on the 11th November 2014. It will perform detailed analysis of the comet's surface, giving an insight into conditions during the formation of the solar system some 4.6 billion years ago.
