In 2014, after a 10-year journey, the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission arrived at its destination: Comet 67P, Churyumov‑Gerasimenko. Rosetta’s lander, Philae, soon touched down on the 2.7 mile x 2.5 mile comet, becoming the first spacecraft to land on a comet nucleus. During its 2-year rendezvous with 67P, Rosetta collected a wealth of information about the comet’s geological processes, composition, and origins.
