Rosetta's comet adventure in numbers
Darmstadt, Germany (AFP) Sept 30, 2016
Europe's ground-breaking quest to unravel the Solar System's mysteries concludes Friday with the Rosetta comet chaser crashlanding onto the cosmic wanderer's rocky surface. The mission, summarised in numbers: 1: Rosetta became the first spacecraft, in August 2014, to enter the orbit of a comet. In November of that year, it sent down robot lab Philae, which became the first comet lander. 6.5 billion: Kilometres (four billion miles) travelled from Rosetta's launch in March 2004 until it reach ... read more
