Rosetta to Chase a Comet

epa04032063 An undated handout artist's view of Rosetta made available by the European Space Agency (ESA) on 20 January 2014 showing Europe's Rosetta probe. Media reports on 20 January 2014 state that NASA is participating in the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission, whose goal is to observe one such space-bound icy dirt ball from up close -- for months on end. The spacecraft, festooned with 25 instruments between its lander and orbiter (including three from NASA), is programmed to 'wake up' from hibernation on 20 January 2014. After a check-out period, it will monitor comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as it makes its nosedive into, and then climb out of, the inner solar system.
