Ten years of planning, ten years of travel, 2.5 years of deep sleep and nine million kilometres still to go before reaching the goal. Cross your fingers on Monday, 20 January at 11:00 a.m.! That’s when four alarm clocks go off at once to wake up Rosetta, eight hundred million kilometres away. One of the most exciting space missions then enters the home stretch.

On behalf of DLR, DFD‘s Science Communication and Visualization unit developed, filmed and animated a short film about the mission – Part 1: “Chasing a Comet”. Here you see the original version. The German / English version you can find under YouTube.
