Visit a Comet by Hitching a Ride on the Rosetta Space Probe

Here is the video on YouTube if the Vimeo video vanishes.(Say that ten times, fast.)Friday, January 10th
It’s always a blast watching a good sci-fi film or TV series that takes us on a journey through space (e.g. Ad Astra and The Expanse). There’s something about feeling like you are exploring ‘the final frontier’ that makes you realise we live right at the beginning of a new era in which humans have become a space-faring species.
It’s easy to forget though that we already are exploring our solar system (and beyond) currently via robotic space probes – from the gas giants Saturn and Jupiter through to expeditions to individual comets and asteroids.
One of those latter expeditions was the Rosetta spacecraft’s visit to comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67p) a few years ago – and if you’d like to experience what it would have been like to be riding on board, check out this amazing video constructed from photos taken by the probe, augmented with some digital enhancement:
In 2016 an exciting mission was ended. The Rosetta spacecraft made its final manouevre: a controlled hard-landing on the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67p).
Before that Rosetta accompanied the comet for more than 2 years. It researched valuable scientific data, brought a lander on to the comet’s surface and took a vast number of pictures.
In 2017 the European Space Agency (ESA) released over 400000 images from Rosettas comet mission. Based on this material motion designer Christian Stangl and composer Wolfgang Stangl worked together to create this short film. The sequences are digitally enhanced real footage from the probe.
Watch the beauty of an active alien body, far out in the depths of our solar system.
