More about World Science Festival
This summer, a spacecraft named “Rosetta” will rendezvous with the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, having traveled 3.7 billion miles from Earth. “Rosetta,” launched in 2004, will attempt a first-ever landing on the comet in November. Join the World Science Festival in Brooklyn Bridge Park to see a dynamic installation of the comet itself.
Invitation Only School Programs (May 28 - May 30):
Students learn the amazing ten year story of The Rosetta Mission and how scientists believe our oceans may have come from comets. They then make their own “kitchen comet.” Suggested for grades 4-8. If you are an educator and want to bring you students, please email email@example.com to reserve a slot.
Presented in collaboration with Studio KCA and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The Rosetta Mission is a European Space Agency flagship mission with contributions from its member states and NASA.
