Rosetta’s Philae Lander: New Discoveries in Science

The Philae lander has provided much information about comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko’s surface structure from the ROsetta Lander Imaging System – or ROLIS camera – a copy of which can be found at the German Space Agency, DLR, in Berlin.

Also, Philae’s COSAC instrument has detected over a dozen molecules containing carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen from the dust cloud kicked up from landing.

Rosetta scientists have analyzed grains from the comet and discovered that it contains carbon rich molecules from the early formation of our solar system.
