Exhibition Looks Back at Rosetta’s Amazing 10-Year Space Journey

Rosetta made space history by becoming the first mission to orbit a comet and send a module to land on a comet’s surface. The European Space Agency (ESA) and the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, in Germany, are bringing the Rosetta mission to life in an exhibition running until 8 October.

The Grand Hall of the museum will display models of the Rosetta orbiter and the Philae landing module, the comet and the Ariane 5 rocket in a 480 sq m exhibition space. A multimedia ceiling projection provides a vivid impression of the seven-billion-kilometer journey. Visitors are also able to see spectacular meteorites and gain insight into the building blocks of our Solar System.
