Rosetta has been ESA's most complex undertaking in exploring the Solar System. Rosetta has a high German participation in the scientific payload: German scientists have the primary responsibility for half of all instruments and a total of three-quarters of the instruments. Of the total mission cost of around one billion euros, about 30% was raised by Germany - mainly DLR's German Space Agency: two thirds as Germany's ESA contribution and third by national resources, including the basic funding of participating institutes.
