Rosetta captures the birth of a comet dust jet- 21-04-2015

Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is one busy bundle of ice and rock. It doesn’t just sit there like a lump in space, but rather emanates jets of dust and plumes of vapor. The European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft is witnessing this activity and giving us some exciting images of material streaming off the comet’s surface. A newly released image shows the rare moment when a fresh dust jet emerges.
