Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko

In this picture taken on August 3, 2014 by Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera, Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is pictured from a distance of 285 km. A mission to orbit and land the first space probe on a comet reached a major milestone when the unmanned Rosetta spacecraft finally caught up with its quarry on August 6, 2014. Rosetta later successfully landed a probe on the comet’s surface.
