Rosetta Mission

The Rosetta space mission was approved in November of 1993. The craft was built by engineers from all around the world. The scheduled year the spacecraft would take in 2003 but was postponed to 2004 due to a malfunction in the spacecraft. This was mission was a part of ESA’s  Horizon’s  Programme. The Mission took 10 years to orbit the comet. The mission was named rosetta after the rosetta stone because both are going to tell us more about the world and the universe. And finally on  November 12 2014 the spacecraft landed and engineers and scientists rejoiced. That is what I learned about the Rosetta spacecraft.
