The ESA Rosetta Mission

Centrum Badań Kosmicznych PAN (eng. Space Research Centre PAS) is deeply involved in the ongoing ESA/Rosetta exploration of a comet named Churyumov-Gerasimenko and numbered 67P. Among CBK PAN staff contributing to this effort are:

Wlodek Kofman -- PI for the CONSERT experiment

Hans Rickman -- Lead scientist on the OSIRIS team

Maria Blecka -- Member of the VIRTIS team

Marek Banaszkiewicz -- Contributor to the MUPUS lander experiment

Jerzy Grygorczuk -- Chief engineer behind the MUPUS penetrator

We plan to issue "Rosetta Updates" on a semi-regular basis, typically once every other week, as long as there are new interesting results coming from the mission, and to publish these in both Polish and English at this site. We invite you to follow the exciting news with us by checking these notes!
