Rosetta on the Comet

As you may or may not be aware, the ESP's Rosetta charted a course across our solar system and has entered an orbit around the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (they really, really need to work on these names, I know its usually after who discovered them but still…). Once she stabilizes and they find a good landing zone, she'll send a probe down to make some crop circles.

But in the meantime, Rosetta captured some astounding photos of the comet itself. Enjoy here, curtesy of Space.com!
