As the Rosetta Mission comes to an end, watching the livestream, I reflected back on the key moments I watched, From the waking up of the probe to the successful orbit and of course the exciting landing of Philea which for me echoed the excitement of the Apollo landings .
Flamsteed members have followed the mission with excitement and interest and we were very fortunate to have two excellent speakers from the mission, Mark Maceaghrean and Matthew Taylor.
Let us now look forward to more exciting science from the Gaia mission, the topic of the talk in October, and the landing of the Exomars lander, a talk on this later in the season.
Well done the ESA teams and we look forward to more exciting science from Rosetta in the future. Finally a big thank you to Rosetta and Philea and a minutes reflection for them both.
The Sky at Night Rosetta special was a good watch. I especially loved how they observed the formation of the comet tails. Now I know why the tails of some comets like last years Catalina have more than one stream at very large angles from each other.
What an awesome mission this was…well still is, lots of data to process for a while yet!
Look forward to all those talks Brian, thanks for making them happen!

no wait, I might as well say something useful. Be sure you to watch the previous Sky at Night about Interstellar travel, so damn fascinating 🙂
I agree Tej a good programme. Thanks for the thanks.
I had to right click and open the image in a new tab to see the rest of the joke, Andy.
Really funny and charming!
