Two and a half months before the long-awaited touchdown of Philae, scores of scientists from ESA, CNES, DLR and other agencies and laboratories convened at CNES in Toulouse this weekend, to draw up a list of five suitable landing sites on the nucleus of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P). Touchdown is still on-schedule for mid-November.
Europe’s fifth ISS cargo resupply ship, sent aloft 30 July by an Ariane 5 launcher, reached its destination this Tuesday 12 August. The station crew will be opening the hatch in a few days’ time. See multi-camera footage of the final minutes of the docking sequence here.
After flawlessly completing a 10th rendezvous braking manoeuvre since 7 May, Rosetta arrived today at its destination and is now 100 km from the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
The nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko seems to be composed of two parts. The latest pictures have caused something of a stir among scientists.
A new website for CNES, the French Space Agency
First you’ll find that the graphics have changed, to adapt to the growing demand for images and to provide better showcasing for video. Henceforth, you can enjoy instant access to our latest Journal de l’espace or even a bizarre encounter with the illustrator, Moebius.
The second improvement is the site’s user-friendliness, with more intuitive navigation, a redesigned structure and the introduction of new tools such as the ‘word cloud’.
For professionals, our site now offers easily identifiable dedicated areas for journalists, public officials and policy-makers, as well as for the educational and scientific communities.
You can find your news item, sorted by category, and consult detailed special features in the section entitled “Find out more about space”.
A colour, a content and a cnes.fr to suit everyone... Happy navigating!
