Rosetta Bunks Off
The European Space Agency has announced that Director of the Rosetta Project has resigned.
This follows the discovery that the Rosetta spacecraft which was launched more than ten years ago from French Guiana and programmed to chase down Comet 67/PChuryumov-Gerasimenko (known affectionately as Churo) and drop a lander equipped with scientific instruments onto its surface, has gone rogue.
Despite the reassuring signals received over the last decade suggesting it was on course, it has now been established that it is hiding in some bushes off an autostrade in northern Italy.
