ESA-Rosetta’s first craft to Land on Comet in November

ESA-Rosetta’s first craft to Land on Comet in November

A NASA spectrometer called 'Alice', in combination with the Europe Space Agency's Rosetta Spacecraft has been sending details about the space. The Rosetta will make history once again in November when its Philae Lander will become the first craft to land on a comet.

Churyumov-Gerasimenko, or Comet 67P, has been moving around the Sun every 6.5 years for billions of years. In 1969, it was discovered and is about two miles across and spins on its own axis every 12 hours.

Neanderthals lived alongside Modern Humans for 5,000 Years

Neanderthals lived alongside Modern Humans for 5,000 Years

If findings of a new study are to be believed, Neanderthals lived together with modern humans for thousands of years. Researchers have suggested that disappearance of Neanderthals did not happen quickly, as it was actually a gradual process. It paved way for modern humans and Neanderthals to share ideas, knowledge with each other and even make physical relations.

Published in the journal Nature August 20 issue, the study has showed that modern humans and Neanderthals spent 2,600 to 5,400 years with each other, before Neanderthals ultimately disappeared about 40,000 years ago.

Two More Galileo Satellites Successfully Delivered into Orbit, says ESA

The European Space Agency (ESA) announced on Friday that two more Galileo satellites, Galileo 5 and 6, have been successfully launched into orbit. The satellites were carried on a Russian Soyuz rocket operated by Arianespace and blasted off French Guiana.

Due to bad weather, the launch was delayed by 24 hours. The rocket was finally launched at 12:27 GMT from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. These devices, each of 750-kilo, join other four that were launched in 2011 and 2012.

Rosetta Completes Journey of Four Billion Miles to Finally reach at Its Destination

Rosetta Completes Journey of Four Billion Miles to Finally reach at Its Destinat

The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft has finally completed a journey of four billion miles to reach at its destination on Wednesday. Rosetta will now conduct a close examination of a comet it was cruising for. Rosetta has been travelling for 10 years.

A thruster was fired at 5 am for six minutes to reduce the speed of Rosetta so that is can walk at two miles per hour relative to the speed of its target, Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Rosetta Spacecraft to Position Robotic Lander Philae on Comet’s Surface This Nov

A European spacecraft, Rosetta, has come closer to the comet after covering a distance of more than five times the Earth's distance from the Sun in more than 10 years. Rosetta is a box-like structure less than three meters long with two wing-like solar panels.

The Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, officially designated 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, is a comet with a current orbital period of 6.45 years and a rotation period of approximately 12.7 hours.
