Rosetta Spacecraft Picks Up a Mysterious Song From Comet 67P - As ESA's Rosetta spacecraft prepared to dispatch its Philae lander to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, a set of instruments on Rosetta picked up a mysterious "song" from the comet. Neutral particles released into space by the comet may becoming electrically charged or ionized. The mechanism behind the oscillations remains a mystery

Rosetta spacecraft arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on Aug. 6, 2014. Rosetta is named for the Rosetta Stone, a block of black basalt that was inscribed with a royal decree in three languages — Egyptian hieroglyphics, Egyptian Demotic and Greek. The spacecraft's robotic lander is called Philae, named after a similarly inscribed obelisk found on an island in the Nile River. Philae will land on the comet in November- the first ever controlled landing on a comet.

Using the CIVA camera on Rosetta’s Philae lander, the spacecraft have snapped a ‘selfie’ at comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko from a distance of about 16 km from the surface of the comet. The image was taken on Oct. 7, 2014 and captures the side of the Rosetta spacecraft and one of Rosetta’s 14 m-long solar wings, with the comet in the background.
