“Once upon a time, a spacecraft named Rosetta was launched into the night sky and had a long journey ahead of her to uncover the mysteries of our solar system. “
The ESA Rosetta team have created this cute video that explains Rosetta’s mission and the magic of space travel whilst personifying the spacecraft perfectly.
After 31 months of deep-space hibernation, on 20th January 2014 the comet-chaser will be waking up at 10am, 673 kilometres from the warmth of the sun. Without coffee.
