Space probe "Rosetta" and lander "Phil" aboard the station were already awake and ready to meet with the comet Churyumov Gerasimenko. This has already been written
Habré. But the meeting of the module and the comet will only happen in November this year, so that will have to wait quite a long time.
To not have to be bored while waiting for the European Space Agency (ESA) has released an interactive 3D simulation of the mission. More specifically, the simulator preparing group INOVE Space Models, which is not just once or twice to create interesting patterns, for example, solar system
or comet ISON
By the way, there are two versions of the simulator - embedded and full-screen
. To begin working with the simulator, you just need to click at any point. Start running the mission from the outset. If you do not want to watch anything you can learn any phase of the mission.
In addition, the model can rotate, zoom in and out. All this is done with the mouse. Model is very realistic, it shows all the details of the mission, all the maneuvers interplanetary station. After reviewing this model, one can understand how difficult maneuvers necessary to perform a "Rosetta" to get closer to the end point of its mission. It is difficult to imagine how much had to make computing scientists.
In general, it's time to try. In a way
