Here’s the latest image of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from Rosetta (09 August 2014). Rosetta was about 99 km / 62 miles from the comet’s surface.

I wonder if anybody at ESA knew 67P/C-G was so complex?  I bet they didn’t plan on finding the best place to put the little Philae lander to be almost as difficult as getting there. :mrgreen:
