R.I.P. Rosetta

Rosetta was a Space Probe orbiting the comet 67P. It was tasked with orbiting, taking pictures of the comet and analyzing the gasses released by the comet.

While orbiting the probe, found sugars and amino acids found in proteins for cells. It also discovered that this comet does not have a magnetic field

Scientist are hoping to get a better understanding of not only the universe from the comet but what seeded the Earth. They have discovered carbon contains organic molecules not yet seen on comets.

Rosetta launched a probe named Philae, it was tasked with landing on the comet and take scientific measurements for the 50 hours it was alive.

RIP Rosetta probe - thank you for the memories - BBC Newsbeat
