Rosseta Wakeup

Rosseta Wakeup


Description of Activity: 

Join us to start the 100-day countdown to the Rosetta Spacecraft waking up to begin its exploration of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. On wakeup day, ESA will beam messages from groups around the world to the spacecraft. You can contribute your own wakeup message on the Rosetta Facebook page: (there are some really cool ones posted already). During this hangout, we'll show some of the best videos, so enter your own today and potentially see it on-air on January 20. Want to share your video with our community now?
