The Rosetta Mission – A claymation tale of science & adventure

In August 2014, after ten years of traveling, the Rosetta space probe and its lander Philae made a historic rendezvous with Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, and in November 2014, Philae landed/bounced onto the comet’s surface. This Rosetta Mission claymation video from the Royal Observatory Greenwich is a delightful summary of the science fiction-worthy adventure that’s still happening over 300 million miles away.
