Rosetta Mission:  Philae has Landed! (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:30:00
Join us for a live webcast with senior scientist Paul Doherty to discuss breaking news about the Rosetta Mission! The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission deployed its lander, Philae, to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on November 12. 2014. Philae’s landing site, currently known as Site J, is located on the smaller of the comet’s two ‘lobes’, with a backup site on the larger lobe. The sites were selected just six weeks after Rosetta arrived at the comet on August 6, following its 10-year journey through the Solar System.

Rosetta Mission:  Preparing for Landing (Clip)
Running Time:

The race to find Philae's landing site could only begin once Rosetta arrived at comet, 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on August 6th, when the comet was seen close-up for the first time. Since then, the spacecraft has moved to within 30 km of the comet, affording more detailed scientific measurements of the candidate sites. In parallel, the operations and flight dynamics teams have been exploring options for delivering the lander to all five candidate landing sites. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist, Isabel Hawkins for a live webcast detailing the amazing stages of the Rosetta Mission!
