Rosetta and Philae
Hi, LEGO Fans.
As you maybe know, on November 14th the probe, called Philae, landed on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Below I give some facts about Rosetta and Philae:
"Philae is a robotic European Space Agency lander that accompanied the Rosetta spacecraft until its designated landing on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko (67P), more than ten years after departing Earth. On 12 November 2014, the lander achieved the first-ever controlled touchdown on a comet nucleus. Its instruments obtained the first images from a comet's surface. Philae is tracked and operated from the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) at Darmstadt, Germany. Several of the instruments on Philae made the first in situ analysis of a comet sending back data that will be analysed to determine the composition of the surface."
So, to commemorate that landing I created this set.
- The Philae can be pushed off using a Cross Axle (as the images below show)
- The solar panels can be rotated
Now I am thinking about the solar panels. Should I left them as now, or should I make them textured (the solar panel texture as on Philae). Could you help me choosing?
Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate your opinion! Just let me know if you want something in the update, etc.
Thanks for watching! I hope you like it!
