To Catch a Comet

           After 10 years since its launch from Earth, the Rosetta Spacecraft has entered orbit with a comet. The first spacecraft to ever accompany a comet as it enters the inner solar system, Rosetta is due to land on the comet in two years to study the comet's composition. Comets are a special kind of celestial object, and are commonly referred to as the remnants of the birth of a solar system. Scientists hope that this mission will answer many questions about the origins of our solar system, and even life on Earth. The aptly names Rosetta Spacecraft will potentially allow us to decipher how we came to be, and unlock the secrets of our solar system. Follow the link to read more.
