A color image of Rosetta's comet buddy has emerged online and may shine some brightness on a comet that has become famous in black and white.
Rosetta spent more than a decade traveling from Earth to hop a ride on a comet for the first time in history. Here's a look back at one long cosmic road trip.
Its battery dead, the European lander is lost in a crater somewhere on a huge comet. But the orbiter that brought it there still has plenty of science left to do.
The Rosetta mission's successful comet landing turns bittersweet as the Philae lander ekes out as much science as possible before losing power and slipping into sleep.
The Rosetta mission has picked up on a strange "song" being emitted from its comet buddy and it sounds an awful lot like a famous sci-fi alien.
Not long ago, the Internet was speculating that Comet 67P was on the reddish side, but a new image from the European Space Agency shows the comet goes for gray.
Rosetta researchers think comets are less likely to be the source of Earth's water than previously thought, which also makes them a great source of fuel for fictional starship warp cores.
The Rosetta mission has sent back a bevy of up-close and personal photos of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko with a level of detail that boggles the mind.
It's been a big month for space travel, both in fact and fiction. On today's CraveCast, the crew looks at the first successful landing on a comet, as well as the space epic "Interstellar." Join us at noon PT.
The hunt for Rosetta's lost lander Philae is gaining steam as scientists pore over images from above the comet that may help reveal its final location.
