Watch Rosetta’s story, from 1985 till 2016

Just watch this 30 minute video about the Rosetta Spacecraft; from the day of her ‘birth’ on paper, on May 22nd 1985 until her scheduled plunge on comet P67, Churyumov Gerasimenko, September 30th 2016.
What an enormous achievement, what an incredible source of data for science and what a life this satellite Rosetta and her little drop-off kid Philae had.
Thank you for being a little particle of it.
