Landing on a Comet

ESA's Rosetta mission was launched in 2004, arrived at comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko in August 2014, and since then has been studying the comet and its dust outflows. The Philae lander was delivered to the comet in November 2014, and produced data for 70 hours before its batteries died. The talk will describe the Rosetta mission, and some of its science highlights.
