On August 6, 2014, after a 10-year journey through interplanetary space, the ESA Rosette spacecraft reached its final goal. He managed to get to the comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This was the first successful mission to land on a comet. A few months later, Phila's landing gear was lowered to the surface, and the study from orbit continued until the end of the mission (September 30, 2016).
During his life, Rosetta large-scale reflected the surface of a comet, which has since been divided into 26 geological regions, named after ancient Egyptian deities. The object is shaped like a duck with a small “head” attached to a large “body”. The image shows a section 67P viewed by an OSIRIS high resolution camera on February 10, 2016. A large frame shows a slightly wider view of the “Bes” area. The detail shows an uneven, shaded surface. To the right of the center is a vertical line surrounded by scattered depressions, rocky outcrops and debris.
