Fancy printing a comet?

The comet photo by Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera in August 2014 from a distance of 285 km. The comet is about 4 km in diameter with a rotating period of hours. It is moving through space at a speed of km per hour.

Gigantic cosmic cliff: Composed from four separate photos taken by Rosetta’s NAVCAM from approximately 12 miles away, amateur astronomer Stuart Atkinson’s crop work focuses our attention on the rugged cliff face, the boulders at the foot of which are approximately the length of an articulated (60ft) bus.
