El 67P con espectaculares detalles

This OSIRIS narrow-angle camera image highlights the boundary between the Hathor and Anuket regions on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s small lobe. Parts of the large lobe can be seen in the foreground.

This OSIRIS narrow-angle camera image highlights the boundary between the Hathor and Anuket regions on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s small lobe. Parts of the large lobe can be seen in the foreground. The image was taken on 13 September 2014, when Rosetta was about 28 km from the surface of the comet.

 This OSIRIS narrow-angle camera image focuses on the transition between the smooth neck region (Hapi) on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and the rough Anuket region on the comet’s small lobe. The image was taken on 15 September 2014 when Rosetta was about 26 km from the surface of the comet.

 This image focuses on the cliff-like region in Seth and Babi on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s large lobe and their boundary with the neck region, Hapi. An annotated version indicating the boundary between Seth and Babi can be found here. The image was taken on 10 September 2014 when Rosetta was about 27 km from the comet surface.

 Close-up view of the Serqet and Nut regions on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s small lobe. Serqet is defined by a ridge of consolidated material with an adjacent flat and smooth, dusty plain (centre), which forms the rim of Nut. Nut (towards the bottom of the image) is classified as a depression and is infilled with boulders and dust. The image was taken with Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on 20 September 2014 when the spacecraft was about 26 km from the surface of the comet.

 This image shows the interesting surface textures at the boundary of the Ma’at and Maftet region on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s small lobe. The dust covered Ma’at region is just seen in the top right, which seems to thin out into the rough, terraced terrain of Maftet in the lower left. The image was taken with Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on 30 September.

 This image focuses on Apis and Atum regions on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s large lobe in the foreground, with parts of the small lobe in the background. The image is a mosaic of two OSIRIS narrow-angle camera images. The images were acquired on 5 September 2014 when Rosetta was about 40 km from the surface of the comet.

 Close-up view of surface textures in the Ma’at region, close to the boundary with Maftet, on the small lobe of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. In this boundary region the dust that dominates Ma’at seems to thin out towards Maftet, revealing rougher terrain below. In the section shown here the dust shows a pitted texture, which may suggest an ice-rich material that may be undergoing desiccation through sublimation. The image is a crop from an image taken with the OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on 19 October 2014 from a distance of 8 km from the comet’s surface.
