Hi All,

Check out Emily Lakdawalla's latest blog on comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko and Rosetta over at the Planetary Society. At last the spacecraft is close enough to start seeing detail in the nucleus. Will be even better when they go into orbit next month.

Love the name for the nucleus' shape..... Rubber Ducky!

Cheers,

Maurice
