Rosetta Mission Webcast
Saturday, January 18, 2014 • 1:00–2:00 p.m.
Admission: Free with museum admission
Join Exploratorium scientists Paul Doherty and Isabel Hawkins for a live Rosetta Mission webcast. The Rosetta spacecraft, launched by the European Space Agency on March 2, 2004, will soon be awakened from deep-space hibernation and continue its journey to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, where it will make the most detailed study of a comet ever attempted. Rosetta will follow the comet on its journey through the inner solar system, measuring the increase in activity as the sun warms its icy surface. The first images of the comet are expected in May.
