The issue of Science magazine, 23 January 2015, features four papers about the investigations made with the Rosetta OSIRIS scientific cameras and VIRTIS instruments. Three are co-authored by CBK PAN researcher, prof. Hans Rickman, who is a lead scientist within the OSIRIS team. The fourth paper refers to the results obtained in the experiment VIRTIS, in which dr. Maria I. Błęcka participates.

The first is an overview paper by H. Sierks et al. entitled "On the nucleus structure and activity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko". The second gives a preliminary but detailed account of the features seen on the nucleus surface. This is by N. Thomas et al. and is entitled "The morphological diversity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko". The third describes OSIRIS imaging of dust grains in the surroundings of the nucleus by A. Rotundi et al. and is entitled "Dust measurements in the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko inbound to the Sun between 3.7 and 3.4 AU". The fourth by F.Cappacioni et al., entitled ,,The organic-rich surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as seen by VIRTIS/Rosetta'' describes types of substances seen in visible and infrared ranges of spectra obtained in different areas of cometary surface.
