Future scientific launches
The European Space Agency (ESA) has announced that its Rosetta spacecraft will deploy the Philae lander on 12 November. The chosen landing site will be finally confirmed on 14 October.
After a busy weekend at CNES in Toulouse, Rosetta mission managers have chosen Philae’s landing site: on 11 November, if all goes according to plan, Europe’s lander module will touch down at Site J, located on the ‘head’ of comet 67P.
