Interactive video lesson plan for: Rosetta & the Comet (live public talk)

Activity overview:

Original air date: August 11 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET); August 12 at 2:00 UTC

Rosetta has been one of the most difficult space missions ever attempted. After 10 years of flight, it caught up with a comet speeding at 55,000 km/h and dropped a lander on its surface. Then the mother craft orbited the comet for another year and a half, coming as close as 6 km from the surface. In September of 2016, the mothership, not designed for landing, will touch down onto the comet and end the mission. This public talk will describe the upcoming landing, and tell you what we've learned from Rosetta about comets and the formation of the solar system.
