Goodbye, Rosetta: the mission of the legendary space probe is completed

Goodbye, Rosetta: the mission of the legendary space probe is completed
The European Space Agency broadcasted the last moments of existence of the probe Rosetta which has made a huge contribution to the development of space science.

The twelve-year-old mission of the probe Rosetta has come to an end: the probe that studied the structure of celestial bodies collided with the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko opened in 1969 by well-known scientists. It is the comet which was the object of study of Rosetta. The probe has collected a lot of useful data - in particular, the theory that water has a cometary origin has been refuted. The probe also found oxygen in the tail of the comet and nitrogen on the surface of the comet. ESA prepared a video about the collision of a comet and the probe and even made a touching animation, in which the Earth says goodbye to Rosetta and thanks it for the mission.

Rosetta began its journey in 2004 . The comet has made many complex maneuvers and during the last two years it was in the comet's orbit. Rosetta also sent another probe to the comet, Philae, which landed badly, so the mission was failed - but it was the first such operation in the world. During its time, Rosetta overcame six billion kilometers.скачать dle 10.6фильмы бесплатно
