On August 6, 02014, the European Space Agency’s Rosetta probe successfully reached Comet 67P. In addition to studying the comet, Rosetta was able to place one of Long Now’s Rosetta Disks on its surface via its Philae lander.
In 02017, ESA released over 400,000 images from the Rosetta mission. Now, motion designer Christian Stangl has made a short film out of the images.
The Comet offers a remarkable, beautiful, and haunting look at this alien body from the Kuiper belt. Watch it below:
