Rendezvous with a comet: The Rosetta Mission

In the first interplanetary mission to land a scientific probe onto the surface of a comet more than 500 million km from Earth, the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft has been in interplanetary flight through the solar system for more than 12 years. It’s travelled a total distance of more than 8 billion km – five times around the Sun – and is now orbiting Comet-67P after making history by landing on the comet in 2014.

Join us to hear first-hand from a Rosetta space engineer about the building, testing and launch of the Rosetta orbiter and Philae lander spacecraft, and the mission highlights – including detailed images and what we’ve learned so far from the scientific results the orbiter has collected.

When: Wednesday, 20 April. Refreshments from 5:30pm, talk and live streaming<http://newsletter.nova.org.au/t/i-i-htbyky-l-y/> 6pm - 7pm
