Rosetta: Scrutinizing the nucleus Print E-mail
Thursday, 30 October 2014 11:41

The Rosetta spacecraft continues to move in close vicinity of the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and it has reached distances less than 10 kilometers from the surface. Images have been taken with an amazing resolution. Even so, it is not immediately clear what it is that we are seeing. This discussion is ongoing and will certainly continue for some time. Actually, even the large-scale features are sometimes hard to interpret, and this makes it difficult to reach conclusions about the most fundamental questions about the origin of the nucleus.
