SUMMARY: The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft is all set to launch on board an Ariane 5 rocket on February 26, 2004. The spacecraft will meet up with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in 2014, and then journey alongside it to see how comets change as they fly towards the Sun. It will deposit a lander onto the surface of the comet, which will use a two-metre arm to investigate its surroundings.
