Rosetta & Philae: From Concept To Reality


I am stepping in at the last minute, as their arranged speaker has unfortunately let them down at short notice.

My presentation includes the conclusion of this spectacular mission to Comet 67P – Churyumov-Gerasimenko, right down to its final image before it “crash” landed on the comet’s nucleus, plus some of the latest findings that have recently been published.

Courtesy of Dr Colin Snodgrass from the Open University, there is a chance for the audience to sniff Comet 67P.  I will be collecting opinions on what the audience think it smells like.

Thanks to a 3D printed model, they can also get a really good feel for what the comet looks like.

So, if you’re in the area, come along, say “Hello” and enjoy my presentation.

I’m really looking forward to catching up with this group again.

Doors open at 7:30pm, Meeting starts around 8:00pm.

Dorridge Village Hall,
