Warwick Holmes worked for over four years at the European Space Agency (ESA) on the Rosetta/Philae mission to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. He recently visited Sydney Observatory and brought along his model of the comet. It is difficult to photograph because it is jet black. The real thing is blacker still!
Warwick will present an insider’s view of the mission, including the spacecraft design and the images and the science acquired, during Sydney Science Festival, Thursday August 20, 6:30-8:00pm. Booking required.
