Landing on a comet
A talk by Prof. John Zarniecki, CPhys, FRAS (Open University). Britain and Europe have a long tradition in the study of Comets – from Edmund Halley to the Giotto space mission which flew only 600 km from the nucleus of his comet to the Rosetta space mission which has been flying already for 8 years to a landing on a comet in 2014. Prof. Zarniecki will attempt to talk about all of these if time allows!!
