The ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft is on a decade-long mission to bring the Philae lander to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. They’re getting close, but it’s a long trip. From this animation it looks like Philae is getting a little impatient to reach the comet and start doing some science.
- Rosetta just released a GIF of comet 67P spinning as it approaches
- Here’s an interactive 3D visualization of the entire Rosetta mission
- Rosetta woke up in January of this year to fulfill her destiny
