The Rosetta mission is a European Space Agency mission to rendezvous with a comet. Following a 10 year journey to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, the Rosetta spacecraft succeeded in landing the Philae probe onto the surface of the comet in November 2014. Despite the landing not quite going to plan, Philae sent back a wealth of data that is changing our understanding of comets and the formation of our Solar System. In this talk, Dr Andrew Morse will give an overview of the mission and highlight some of the science results so far.
