2014: Rosetta fantastic adventure

The Rosetta broke March 2, 2004, a rocket Ariane 5 G +, from French Guiana, toward comet 67 P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. To get there, the European probe traveled 6.5 billion miles.

Hibernada for 31 months, the Rosetta woke up January 20, 2014 as forecasted. In the control centre of the European Space Agency (ESA) have lived moments of joy.

Everything was well underway for the appointment with the Comet, the August 6, 2014. Rosetta has a scanner to detect the best landing point in Agikia module, the name of an island in the Nile.

Thus, on 12 November, the little robot Philae made a descent of 10:0 to the first cosmic landing on a comet.

The images, who travelled 450 million miles to announce the good news brought sound.

The Philae landed well despite the harpoons have not triggered and the robot slipping three icy surface cvezes. Even so, it took place almost as expected: a total success.
