Space History Made Today

Hey Space Placers!

I am back and on line again from New Orleans. My humble and sincere thanks for putting my blog at OVER 1 MILLION page views! Thank you!

Today the European Space Agency (ESA) successfully rendezvoused its Rosetta spacecraft with Comet 67/P after a daring 10 year flight.

The images being transmitted are simply stunning. The detail we can see will only get better as Rosetta gets closer and lands its Philae Lander in the near future.

We will have a ringside seat as Rosetta follows 67/P as it nears the Sun and begins to "turn on" due to the heat from the Sun.

Get the latest on Rosetta - ESA
