Holiday Snaps

Not mine, you’ll be pleased to hear. No. These are from the Rosetta holiday mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. There’s nothing particularly remarkable about these photos, save for the fact that they were ever even taken at all.


You can surf through a couple of hundred pics, all the while marvelling that you’re looking at images taken on a piece of space rock moving at thousands of kilometres an hour, some half a billion kilometres from Earth.

It’s all rather humbling.

  1. But I am viewing them from a desk stuck on a junk of space rock left over from the same destruction of a star that created that comet and also moving at many thousand km/hr. The next bit of excitement I am waiting for is for a device created by these ape descendents to land on an object that comes from a different star destruction.
