f72b4478d3111a7ea0dbb8639ffdcf77-huge-roRosetta Spacecraft the end of a Mission

On Thursday evening, controllers of the Rosetta spacecraft commanded the Rosetta Spacecraft to change course to deliberately crash itself into Comet 67P on 30 September.  The probe is not  expected to survive the crash.  This brings to an end an amazing mission for the probe which arrived at 67P in 2014 after a 10 year journey from Earth.  Click here for further details.

 Earlier in the summer the Aerospace, Satellite Systems & Applications and Robotics & Mechatronics TPNs joined together to organise an evening seminar on the Rosetta Mission.  The two presenters Dr Paolo Ferri and Dr Mark Bentley  agreed to answer questions on the mission, so please go to our discussion forum where you can post your questions and view the presentation slides here.
