Rosetta – Turning science fiction into science reality (HD 720)



Rosetta, the comet chaser mission of the European Space Agency, is controlled and operated from the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany, where ADGA-RHEA ground-breaking technology is used for space operations.
RHEA, a member of the ADGA RHEA Group of Companies, is providing its software MOIS (Manufacturing and Operating Information Systems) as well as direct engineering expertise to support the design, development, testing and operations of Rosetta, one of the most complex and ambitious missions ever undertaken. These indispensable engineering capabilities are critical when the Rosetta lander, Philae, attempts a landing onto the comet surface — a first in space exploration.
