|Rosetta Spacecraft modeled by Ian Shazell|
Rosetta -- a robotic spacecraft built and launched by the European Space Agency -- will attempt to send its lander "Philae" on the comet in November. This is the first time humans have ever tried to land on a comet, as far as we know.
Come to Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 1 on May 28 – 30, and on June 1, from 10 am to 4 pm to explore a replica of the comet installation, learn about the Rosetta Mission, see elements from the mission and speak with a team of scientists and educators from NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab.
The event is part of the World Science Festival.
