Rosetta's lander Philae will target 'Site J' on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko for its landing, it has been reported.
The European Space Agency (ESA) has planned to reveal the site selected for the first landing of a comet this week.
European Space Agency`s spacecraft Rosetta on Wednesday made history in space as it caught up with a comet on its journey around the sun.
The current images acquired by European Space Agency`s spacecraft Rosetta the nucleus of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko covered a good four pixels.
The comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, target of ESA`s Rosetta mission, has begun to develop a dust coma.
European space experts said today they had successfully reawakened a fridge-sized robot designed to make the first-ever spacecraft landing on a comet.
Rosetta, the comet-chasing space probe launched by the European Space Agency a decade ago, has woken up from a 31-month long hibernation.
Rosetta, which was launched about ten year ago on a long quest to chase and land on a comet, will be roused by an onboard "alarm clock" at 10:00 GMT on Monday.
If Europe`s comet-chasing quest goes well, Rosetta, Philae and even the tongue-twisting Churyumov-Gerasimenko may become household names by the end of the year.
Rosetta craft, which was woken up from its slumber recently, aims to deal with the origin and evolution of the solar system.
We all are interested in comets. What they contain, and what information they hide about our solar system.
The European Space Agency has taken the closest look yet at asteroid Lutetia.
A billion-euro (1.5-billion-dollar) European spacecraft made a final flyby of Earth on Friday, using the planet as a gravitational slingshot to speed to a rendezvous with a comet in 2014.
Estimates have shown that European Space Agency’s (ESA) comet chaser Rosetta’s Earth swingby is right on schedule, and it would pass within a few kilometers of the planned point of closest approach during the swingby.
Rosetta will swing by Earth for the last time on Nov 13 to pick up energy and begin the final leg of its 10-year journey.
