Rosetta launched in 2004 and arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 6 August 2014. It is the first mission in history to rendezvous with a comet and escort it as it orbits the Sun. This week one of the highlights of the mission will take place as the Rosetta lander called Philae will be deployed to land on the surface of the comet. You can follow this ground-breaking development live on www.esa.int starting on 11 November at 20:00 CET.  The final phase will start on 12 November at 15:00 CET.
