Rosetta arrives

The Rosetta spacecraft has, after 10 years, arrived at comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. I’m looking forward to seeing better photographs of the comet than the Hubble image above, and a clearer idea of what comets are actually made of.

Update: and here is a lovely picture of the comet, with more here.
