comet's nucleus will be studied remotely and with the aid of a sophisticated landed
Rosetta Science Instruments:
Imager, IR and UV spectrometers, plasma package, radio sounder to investigate
subsurface layering of materials, magnetometer, particle analysis instruments. The landed
package will include an imager, magnetometer, and an alpha/proton/x-ray spectrometer to
determine the chemical composition of the surface materials.
The Rosetta spacecraft will be built and managed by the European Space Agency.
