68 comments

Welcome to my "reloaded and updated" Lego Project:
 
Lego Space History: Rosetta, Philae and 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko

A little background:
 
Rosetta is a robotic space probe built and launched by the European Space Agency (esa).
It was launched on 2 March 2004 and reached the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on 6 August 2014.
 
The Philae lander successfully made the first controlled touchdown on a comet on 12 November 2014.
 
It is so far away (about 190,000,000 km) ... it last about 30 mintues to send a command to the probe and also 30 minutes to get a feedback.
 
For me it is a awesome technical perfomance...
 
And with this Model everybody can have a little "history" of this first space mission of a controlled landing.
 
The Probe is hold by 4 clear pillars.
 
On the ground: the lander and a smaller version of the comet.
 
On the plate there will be some technical information about it.
something like:
 
Mission type: Comet orbiter/lander
Operator: European Space Agency
COSPAR ID 2004-006A
SATCAT No. 28169
Mission duration: (still counting)
Manufacturer: Astrium
Launch mass: Orbiter: 2,900 kg (6,400 lb)
               Lander: 100 kg (220 lb)
 
and so on...

 
 
Now, one year later, I'm still fascinated about this huge project.
 

Hope you like it.
