Speakers: Dr Stephen Lowry

The European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft has been studying comet 67P/ Churyumov–Gerasimenko for over a year. The images sent back from the OSIRIS optical camera instrument on board have revealed a striking and bizarre world. Dr Lowry will summarize the latest findings from the mission, with emphasis on the imaging data from OSIRIS, and what we still hope to learn as the probe continues to escort the comet around the Sun.
