        Rosetta's Mission | To Catch a Comet

        Learn about the comets and their place in the solar system, Rosetta's mission objectives, and how it hopes to achieve them in this clip of To Catch A Comet. Rosetta has an amazing challenge on its hands. It must answer some fundamental questions in science: what are comets made of, what can they reveal about the evolution of our solar system and perhaps more importantly, did they help deliver the building blocks of life to earth billions of years ago? To do this Rosetta will conduct two firsts; it will follow a comet as it shoots towards and around the sun, and it will deliver a lander, Philae, onto its surface.
