Rosetta and Philae: two spacecraft that made history; Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, a comet explored from orbit and from the surface. To celebrate this mission and educate the public about what makes comets so endlessly fascinating, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Berlin Museum of Natural History, the European Space Agency and the Max Planck Society have prepared the exhibition ‘Comets: The Rosetta Mission – A journey to the origins of the Solar System’. The exhibition kicked off on 9 August 2016 and will run until 24 January 2017 at the Berlin Museum of Natural History.

Among the highlights of the exhibition are a 1:1000 scale model of Comet 67P, a 1:1 scale model of the Philae lander, a 1:5 scale model of the Rosetta orbiter, the lander team logbook from landing day, coins depicting Ceasar’s comet from 44BC, videos about the mission and the scientific knowledge gained.

EJR-Quartz was involved in the development of the exhibition through close coordination with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). We provided our editorial services to deliver accurate English text in this bilingual exhibition (German/English), ensuring that the language was appropriate for museum visitors.
