Rosetta Spacecraft Picks Up a Song From Comet 67P - IT'S ELECTRIC! As ESA's Rosetta spacecraft prepared to dispatch its Philae lander to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, a set of instruments on Rosetta picked up a mysterious "song" from the comet.

The Rosetta Spacecraft Took an Epic Selfie With a Comet
Using the CIVA camera on Rosetta’s Philae lander, the spacecraft have snapped a ‘selfie’ at comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko from a distance of about 16 km from the surface of the comet. The image was taken on Oct. 7, 2014 and captures the side of the Rosetta spacecraft and one of Rosetta’s 14 m-long solar wings, with the comet in the background.
