  1. Comet Photobombs Philae Lander’s Selfie From Rosetta Mission

    In space, no one can hear you sneak up behind their selfie.

    Back off, comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko! Philae is an amazing piece of technology and it was trying to take a picture of itself! Stop photobombing him. You're just a giant hunk of rock falling through space! OK, fine. You're a giant, beautiful, scientifically relevant... you know what? All is forgiven. This picture is amazing.

  2. Tomorrow the ESA Rosetta Mission Will Intercept a Comet After a 10-Year Mission

    Some things are worth getting up early for.

    The European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta mission launched a decade ago to intercept, study, and put a lander on Comet 67P. The spacecraft "woke up" earlier this year, and it will reach its goal early tomorrow morning with live streaming coverage beginning at 4:00AM ET.

  3. We Have an Important Update About What We Think Rosetta’s Target Comet Looks Like

    At least the Philae lander will be safe from Munchers!

    The ESA spacecraft Rosetta is moving ever closer towards her target comet 67P, and our pareidolia is running full force to try to decide what it looks like. We've already see a rubber ducky, a marshmallow Peep, a weird butt, and now...

  4. Things We Saw Today: That’s No Moon

    In space, no one can rear you scream.

    Boy, this image of Comet 67P that was taken by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft looks like something, but I can't put my finger on just butt it is. Err, what it is. Go check out some more details on the ESA website.

  5. Cute European Space Agency Animation Shows Philae Impatiently Asking Rosetta “Are We There Yet?”

    How about now? Now? Are we there now? How about now?

    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.

  6. ESA’s Rosetta Brought Us a GIF of a Moving Comet From Way out in Space

    My own reaction GIF-making seems even more trivial now...

    A few months ago, we got the first images from the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission of the comet they're tracking, but at the time, it was no more than an extra bright pixel. Well, now it's several extra-bright pixels, so Rosetta made us a GIF!

  7. Astronauts To Test Super-Sensitive “Touchy-Feely” Joystick In Space, Probably Not A Euphemism

    Or is it?!

    After making a whole lot of NASA-related dick jokes last weekend, I'm going to avoid the easy punchline here and just stick to facts. This summer, astronauts on the International Space Station will test a wearable joystick that might one day allow them to control robots on other words from orbit. Also, you strap the joystick to your waist. Because.

  8. Rosetta Has Finally Spotted Her Comet, Sent Back First Images

    Cue Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight."

    Pictures taken by Rosetta earlier this week confirm that the ESA's little spacecraft that could is right on track for her rendezvous in August with 67P/Churymov-Gerasimenko. For the first time, Rosetta's OSIRIS camera has captured images of the comet on which she will attempt her unprecedented landing.

  9. Check Out This Interactive 3D Visualization Of Rosetta’s Journey Through Space

    Man, can you imagine how bummed we'd all be if this baby hadn't woken up?

    Now that the unmanned spacecraft Rosetta has woken up and contacted the ESA, she can begin her ultimate mission of flying alongside and eventually landing on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.. Want to watch her do it? Well, you can't, because she's in space. But you can track her progress through our galaxy with this interactive map.

  10. ESA’s Unmanned Spacecraft Rosetta Has AWOKEN TO FULFILL HER DESTINY

    "Yeesh, that was a close one," says Science.

    Citizens of Earth, the Rosetta spacecraft awoke from her slumber at the last minute after an agonizing wait yesterday. If you ever wanted to watch grown geniuses weep for joy, this is your chance.
