Hi, I’m Rosetta. I’m a
robotic spacecraft carefully built and launched by the European Space Agency. I got my name from the famous Rosetta stone whose carved inscription unravelled the history of Egypt. Dimension: 2.8 x 2.1 x 2.0 m with two 14 metre long solar panels
This is Philae, my lander.
It was named after the island in the Nile River where an obelisk with bilingual inscription was found. The inscription helped historians decipher the characters on Rosetta stone.
Yes, we were named after
two greatest discoveries in the world because we are meant to uncover something grand. During our 12-year journey across the solar system, we have a super cooool mission: To study in detail the comet called 67P/Churyumov– Gerasimenko.
Our adventure began in March
2004 on an Ariane 5 rocket in French Guiana. Then we started chasing our target comet. We crossed the asteroid belt and travelled into deep space, more than five times Earth’s distance from the Sun. Whew, that far. Philae landing Arrival at comet Rendezvous manoeuvres Rosetta’s journey Comet orbit
But on August 6, 2014,
we finally arrived at the comet and just last November 12, 2014, Philae dramatically landed on the comet’s icy surface. What a phenomenal feat! People celebrated, people hugged, people partied. We were even trending on Twitter. #cometlanding
We are supposed to collect
as much information as we can about one of the oldest objects in our solar system. Unfortunately, Philae’s battery ran down a day after it landed on the comet. Now it’s taking a long nap. But hey, I’m still alive and kicking. I will continue to orbit the comet as it heads towards the inner solar system. I will witness how this icy comet will produce its coma and tail as it gets close to the sun. Up close and personal. Cool!
I will update you with
my discoveries and experience through the radio link. And Twitter, of course. Follow us and let’s all prove science rocks! And hey, do wish me safety and success as I continue to explore space until December 2015. Rosetta twitter Philae twitter
