Caption

Rosetta probe lander Philae on the surface of comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasmineko, computer artwork. Gas and dust are evaporating from the comet's nucleus (core) to form the coma (thin atmosphere) and tail. The surface is depicted as rocky and solid but it may be a looser aggregation of ice and rock. The Rosetta mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) launched on 2 March 2004. It finally entered into orbit around the comet nucleus in August 2014 and is due to send a lander, called Philae, down to the surface in November.
