It’s been an entire year since the Philae Lander made its harrowing journey from the Rosetta spacecraft to the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. In that time, the little lander and its orbital friend have been gathering data and sending it back to the team at the European Space Agency.
On December 10th, Slooh will host a special show to take a look back at humanity’s first year on the surface of a comet. We’ll discuss the many discoveries Philae and Rosetta have managed to make in that short time, the plans for the remainder of the mission, and the future space travel this mission could soon allow.
Slooh members have been working closely with the mission scientists at ESA to track and catalogue 67P over the year-long mission, and have assembled the largest database of images of the comet on the planet. During the show, we’ll take a look at some of the best images they’ve captured so far, unveil some exciting observations, and tell viewers how they can get involved in the program from the comfort of their own homes.
We’ll also take a look at how the Rosetta mission has managed to capture the hearts, minds, and social media accounts of millions of people from across the globe.
