A Comet “Lands” in Brooklyn

Comet along Brooklyn BridgeComet in Brooklyn

Last weekend, I happened upon an exhibit from the World Science Festival. Had I known it was ending on June 1st, I would have posted about it sooner, as it featured an amazing sculpture to view amidst the backdrop of NYC and the Brooklyn Bridge.

The sculpture represents a scaled version of a real comet, “Churyumov-Gerasimenko” (who named this thing??). In an ambitious effort to land on the live comet, back in 2004 the European Space Agency launched a spacecraft called Rosetta. In the past decade, Rosetta has traveled 3.7 billion miles and is finally slated to land this November.

Awesome–I want to watch!
