Rosetta's Comet Touchdown (2010)

PLAY (19:11)

What does a scientist do to help visualise a spacecraft's journey? Build a model of course! A model of Europe's Rosetta comet chaser constructed out of LEGO® blocks started out in this small way and has grown into a project to build a high-fidelity Rosetta Lander Education kit, supported by the German Aerospace Center, DLR, the European Space Agency, ESA, and the LEGO Group.
