This animation tracks Rosetta’s journey through the Solar System, using gravity slingshots from Earth and Mars to reach its final destination: Comet Rosetta made three flybys of Earth, on 4 March 13 November 2007 and 13 November and one of Mars, on

It was 45 years ago when astronomer Klim Churyumov and Svetlana Gerasimenko, one of his researchers, unwittingly began a new chapter in the history of space exploration. During a comet-hunting expedition to Alma-Ata Observatory, Kazakhstan, they discovered the bizarre, ice-rich object – subsequently named Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko – that is now under close scrutiny by ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft.

Europe's Rosetta space probe recently revealed something surprising about 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the comet it's following — it's not one, but two cosmic objects connected!

Rosetta's target is 'double' comet

Rosetta spacecraft's comet has a double nucleus! - In video footage taken from the Rosetta spacecraft on July 2014 - as it speeds towards Comet - Gerasimenko - scientists have identified what looks like a double nucleus, or core, for the comet

Will the Rosetta spacecraft wake up today after two-year sleep? It is due to make 24,600mph comet landing

The Rosetta Mission in Photos, March Rosetta lifts off from Kourou, French Guiana. Rosetta left earth, whipped around it three times to gain speed, and caught up to a comet called On November the spacecraft dropped a lander onto the comet's surface.

ESA’s Rosetta Spacecraft nears final approach to Comet in late July This collage of imagery from Rosetta com.

Rosetta’s first sighting of its target in 2014 - ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft is on a 10-year mission to study Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko up close as the comet enters the solar system. The spacecraft woke up from hibernation on January 20, 2014 and will rendezvous with the comet in May and enter orbit around it in August. - via ESA

▶ NASA | On Nov. 28, ISON will make a sweltering passage around the sun. The comet will approach within about 730,000 miles (1.2 million km) of its visible surface, which classifies ISON as a sungrazing comet. In late November, its icy material will furiously sublimate and release torrents of dust as the surface erodes under the sun's fierce heat, all as sun-monitoring satellites look on.

On October Comet ISON will pass closer to Mars than it ever will to Earth. The Red Planet’s rovers and orbiters are ready to send home .
