The Comet

The European Space Agency's Rosetta probe took ten years to reach its target, comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Then it spent two years studying the comet up close, including deploying the Philae lander to the comet's surface. The ESA released 400,000 images of the comet, which motion designer Christian Stangl weaved together to make this video. Composer Wolfgang Stangl created the sound. The Comet gives the mission an epic science fiction feel, one that the mission deserves. You should watch this in full-screen mode. -via Kottke
