Data of the Rosetta spacecraft and space station experiments MSL
The „Virtual Control Room“ is a feature on the DLR Website, where you have access to some telemetry data for the Missions ROSETTA and EXPOSE (ISS), coming straight from the control rooms of the Microgravity User Support Center (MUSC).
In the context of the Rosetta mission, a scientific probe was accompanied and examined the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The highlight of the mission was the landing of the small piggyback probe Philae onto the comet’s surface. The MUSC has housed the Lander Control Center (LCC). The Philae team at LCC was responsible for the control and operation of the lander.
In the trays of the EXPOSE payload, different organisms and organic-chemical compounds were exposed to the extreme environmental conditions of open space to test their survivability; meanwhile, the intensity and composition of incoming radiation was measured.
