First Panoramic View from Comet Lander
The Philae lander of the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission is safely on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, as these first two images from the lander's CIVA camera confirm on November 12, 2014. One of the landerÕs three feet can be seen in the foreground in this two-image mosaic. Rosetta and Philae had been riding through space together for more than 10 years. Philae is the first probe to achieve soft landing on a comet, and Rosetta is the first to rendezvous with a comet and follow it around the sun. Rosetta is a European Space Agency mission with contributions from its member states and NASA. Editorial Use Only UPI/ESA/Rosetta/CIVA...
