Comet 67P in Berlin

One of the main at­trac­tions of the ‘COMETS – The Roset­ta mis­sion: A Jour­ney to the ori­gins of the So­lar Sys­tem’ ex­hi­bi­tion at the Mu­se­um für Naturkunde in Berlin was a faith­ful four-me­tre 1:1000 scale mod­el of Comet 67P/Churyu­mov-Gerasi­menko. It was built on the ba­sis of a dig­i­tal ter­rain mod­el of 67P that sci­en­tists from the DLR In­sti­tute for Plan­e­tary Re­search in Berlin-Adler­shof gen­er­at­ed us­ing stereo­scop­ic da­ta from the Ger­man cam­era on board the Roset­ta mis­sion.

It was built on the basis of a digital terrain model of 67P that scientists from the DLR Institute for Planetary Research in Berlin-Adlershof generated using stereoscopic data from the German camera on board the Rosetta mission.
