To Catch A Comet Preview
In deep space billions of kilometers from Earth, orbiter Rosetta travels towards an icy rock that hurtles through space at tens of thousands of kilometers per hour. Rosetta has been in space for ten years, but she will do something no other spacecraft has ever attempted — land on the volatile surface of a comet as it flies around the sun.
On November 12, 2014, billions of kilometers from Earth, spacecraft orbiter Rosetta and lander Philae did what no other had dared to attempt — land on the volatile surface of a comet as it zooms around the sun at 67,000 km/hr. The European Space Agency hopes this mission can help peer into our past and unlock secrets of our origins.
