Speakers: Dr Matt Taylor, Rosetta Project Scientist, ESA

The aim of the Rosetta Mission is to map the comet 67-P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko by remote sensing, to examine its environment insitu and its evolution in the inner solar system. The lander Philae is the first device to land on a comet and perform in-situ science on the surface. Nearly 10 years after launch on 20th January 2014 at 10:00 UTC the spacecraft woke up from hibernation, and subsequently successfully entered into orbit around the comet and deployed Philae to the surface (and then some). This talk will summarise the mission up to now operationally and scientifically
