Photo: Comet 67P versus a Modern City

In 2014 , the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft rendezvoused with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as it hurdled around the sun. The ESA was able to deploy a lander to the surface of Comet 67P to study it.

Scientist, and fellow veteran, Antonio Paris made this stunning comparison of the Comet to a modern U.S. city.
