I’m more excited about the European Space Agency’s landing on Comet 67P than I expected. Here’s a bunch of links about it:
- ESA’s “Where is Rosetta?”: A great interactive animated portrayal of the spacecraft’s decade-long journey through the solar system.
- NYT’s “Landing on a Comet, 317 Million Miles From Home“: Good place to start, with photos, graphics, and description.
- The Atlantic’s “Rosetta’s Amazing 10-Year Space Journey“: 28 big pictures from the In Focus feature.
- NASA’s “CometQuest” game: Play this simple game to be reminded that getting photos from a comet is a lot more complicated than you even thought.
- ESA’s Rosetta album on Flickr: Photos going up as fast as they come in.
- XKCD’s live-cartoon of the Rosetta landing: Live-blogging? Psh. Geek uber-cartoonist Randall Munroe does it better.
