Descent images begin!

We’ve started to get images from Rosetta’s descent. This one was taken by the OSIRIS narrow-angle camera at 01:20 UT, from a distance of around 16 km.

The image scale is about 30 cm/pixel and the image measures about 614 m across.

    Hail, Rosetta, and farewell.
    You have increased us all.
    To everyone involved, giving years of your lives to this grand scheme, thank you so much. So very much. So very well done.

    Now, go enjoy your barbecue. You’ve earned it many times over.
