    How Big is Rosetta's Comet 67P

     
    I thought you’d enjoy this image. I am pretty sure I have it correct BUT no-one else has checked the high school math. Ie 67P is 3.5 x 4 km.
    If I have it correct, I hope this image gives a whole new “sense of wonder” of this Rosetta Mission.
    Early ESA thoughts are that landing on the “duck’s neck” seems like a wise place to land. Of course there is little gravity so it should be equally easy for Philae Lander in November to drop to the surface anywhere even on what appears to be vertical slopes  The mind boggles.
