This close-up shows boulders, craters and steep cliffs on the base of the comet's 'body'. The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft was launched in March 2004 on a 10 year mission to reach this comet. It entered orbit on 6 August 2014 at a point in the comet's orbit beyond the orbit of Mars. 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. Image obtained on 6 August 2014 from 130 kilometres.
