Caption: Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko topography. Satellite image of the 'belly' and part of the 'head' of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, showing several morphologically different regions (different colours). The European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft was launched in March 2004 on a 10 year mission to reach this comet, which measures around 3.5 by 4 kilometres. The first mission designed to land on a comet, it is carrying instruments and a lander to map and study the comet's surface and core. Imaged by the OSIRIS (Optical Spectrograph and InfraRed Imager System) instrument on Rosetta.
