        Rosetta Enters Into Orbit | To Catch a Comet: Chapter 5

        In this chapter we see the comet for the first time in unprecedented detail as Rosetta gets closer. We learn that it is a double-headed comet and the flight team finally enter in orbit. We observe activity and jets between the two lobes and explore how the OSIRIS camera on board Rosetta will play a key role in building a global map of the comet to identify a suitable landing site.
