Rosetta getting bashed

5 April 2015

At http://phys.org/print347187952.html … the Rosetta saga continues – it has now experienced significant buffeting and difficulties over controls as Rosetta swoops low across comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, so much so that such close encounters may have to be curtailed in the future. It encountered a dense outflow of gases and dust particles that temporary caused scientists on earth to lose control of the spaceship.
