Roland Approach 1

2011 - Mission to a Comet

This digital illustration  by Erik Viktor  shows the slow and careful approach of the Roland cometary lander. Afar, the dark uninviting shape of the Wirtanen comet displays its irregular and unstable geological features. The sun, this normally powerful beacon, has become a star among others barely brighter than nearby Saturn.
