On September 30, the Rosetta orbiter sent its final message back to Earth before deliberately crashing into comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, its adopted home since November 2014. Over four million people watched the mission’s heartfelt sendoff, livestreamed from the European Space Agency (ESA) operations center in Darmstadt, Germany.
If you’re ever in the mood to relive this historic mission, the first ever to land a probe on a comet, bookmark this enthralling visualization of Rosetta’s entire orbital journey, released by ESA on Thursday.
