Harpooning a Comet

NAVCAM top 10 at 10 km – 5

Rosetta – an album on Flickr.

In 4 hrs we’ll know if we managed to shoot a probe into space and harpoon and land on a comet successfully. Even if the landing is not a success, the images coming back from the inbound are amazing. The above picture is from 10km from the NavCam on the probe.

This is what a comet looks like on it’s surface. Truly amazing.
