In 2014, Rosetta became the first mission to orbit a comet and to deploy a lander onto its surface. This is the story of ESA's pioneering comet explorer, following the mission from its initial inception to its historic touchdown.
Read along as the Rosetta orbiter and its lander, Philae, evolve over the years, overcoming early mission hurdles before embarking on their one-way, decade-long voyage to a comet. See how the saga then culminates with Rosetta and Philae at last unveiling their icy target and achieving an unprecedented touchdown on its surface.
