In August 2014, ESA's Rosetta Spacecraft will rendezvous with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and deploy the Philae lander. See photos from the Rosetta comet probe.

Those are some great photos!  The close-up detail is astounding, especially since that comet is so far away in space. 

What's funny is how detailed these photos are of an object 251 miles away from earth but photos taken here on earth of Bigfoot are always fuzzy and out of focus. 

Thanks for posting this Patricia.  It will be great to see what they learn when the lander stays on the comet for a year.  I think that's what I read.

Patricia, are you familiar with the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast?  On today's show they discuss the Rosetta Spacecraft and have some very interesting additional details to share.

The Rosetta part starts around after the 21 minute mark.
