  1. Rosetta: Five landing sites selected for Philae

    Date de publication:

    25 Août 2014

    Two and a half months before the long-awaited touchdown of Philae, scores of scientists from ESA, CNES, DLR and other agencies and laboratories convened at CNES in Toulouse this weekend, to draw up a list of five suitable landing sites on the nucleus of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P). Touchdown is still on-schedule for mid-November.
