The European Space Agency has commissioned a sequel to the short film "Ambition," honoring a historic mission that's about to come to a dramatic end.
Learn more about the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft that arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on Aug. 6, 2014.
Europe's Rosetta spacecraft will end its mission Friday (Sept. 30) by landing on the comet it's been orbiting for the last two years.
On the same day that the Rosetta probe crashes into a comet, the Science Channel will air a TV special called "Death on a Comet: The Rosetta Mission."
Europe's history-making Rosetta comet mission is coming to an end, and you can watch the grand finale live Thursday and Friday (Sept. 29 and Sept. 30).
The first spacecraft to orbit a comet will end its historic mission on Friday (Sept. 30) with a crash landing.
The Rosetta spacecraft's last maneuver on Sept. 30 will take it toward several active pits on the "head" of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
In August 2014, ESA's Rosetta Spacecraft will rendezvous with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and deploy the Philae lander. See photos from the Rosetta comet probe.
Europe's Rosetta spacecraft has captured dramatic imagery of a comet outburst that may have been caused by a landslide on the icy body.
ESA's Rosetta mission temporarily lost communication with Earth after an error with its star tracker this weekend.
By cooking comet-like ice with radiation similar to that present in the early solar system, scientists have produced, for the first time, the key ingredients for life today.
Gravity measurements taken by the orbiting Rosetta spacecraft show the body of comet 67 P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is about 75 percent dust and 25 percent ice all the way through.
The odds aren’t great. Engineers don’t even know if Philae still has a working receiver and the probe could be covered in dust.
