  67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko makes bath time funJul 22, 2014 11:41 PM PDT | url | discuss | + share
Added 1 new A* page:Well this is last week's news but if you missed it, it's new to you! The European Space Agency's Rosetta probe, due to enter orbit around its research target, the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, on August 6th (and to land a robot on it on November 11th), is getting more detailed photos of the comet as it gets closer, and it has now (or did a couple Fridays ago) gotten close enough to notice—as seen in photographs in the BBC article I'm taking this all from—that Churyumov-Gerasimenko has a very distinctive dual-lobe shape, suggesting that it is maybe two separate objects that stuck together (would they call one "Churyumov" and one "Gerasimenko"?)—either that, or a 4.5km-wide giant rubber ducky coated in ice, which would go a long way to proving one quack's theory that the solar system is really going down the drain. : o
