Rosetta is Awake

 

Europe’s comet chaser spacecraft, Rosetta, has been awakened from a 31 month hibernation after arcing beyond the orbit of Jupiter on it’s way to Comet 67P.

Rosetta will arrive at the comet later this year and deploy a lander to the comet’s surface to gather data for detailed study of the comet.

For more information about this amazing mission, see a report from BBC:

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blg soon but I’m having
    a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seem
    different then most blogs and I’m loolking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!

      Charity,

      Thanks for dropping by, and thanks for the comment (question).

      I think WordPress is the best blogging engine around. Evidently lots of people share my opinion because almost 20% of all the stuff you can find on the web is created using the WordPress engine.

      FYI, my web history over the past several years has included web pages built using raw html, the Google Blogger, the (do longer available Apple iWeb, which was very similar to WordPress) – – have never used BlogEngine or Drupal, so I can not comment on them.

      Good luck with your Blog!
