Here are some recent pictures sent from Rosetta of comet 67P/C-G. They were taken at approximately 7.8km from the surface. Can't wait for Nov 12th!

Also, here's a selfie of Rosetta with the comet at about 16km:

Awesome pictures!

Kinda looks like a statue with some kind of "machine" to the left of it, pareidolia is fun

Comets are more than rocks. Probably more like huge dirty snowballs.

Actually it's 1990's mobile phone, you can see the antenna. It was NASA who invented the mobile phone by reverse engineering left over tech like that that it found on the moon.

Impressive images.

I don't know why, but i'm kind of surprised at the amount of sand and dust on the surface...for some reason i had thought it would be jagged rocks and debris, but not so much stable looking sand.

Yeah, why are they always in black and white? This isn't the 40's.

'They'll' say because of limited bandwidth sending the images back..

I'd say, use better comms and stream time delayed HD movies live on the net.

If you use visible light, you'll only have black and nothing to see. IR is grey scale or something similar.

Don't bother looking for ice of any kind.

So what is the answer?

The answer is that the NAVCAM doesn't need colour, being used for navigation. The OSIRIS camera has filters for scientific purposes, so by combining images taken through red, green, and blue filters we can get a true-colour image. But they haven't released any yet.

All the missions have web sites and guess what details of the instruments on board and how they will be used that should be MysterX's port of call before posting BS claims!
