Spaceship Flyby of an Asteroid

This is really cool. The video is a compilation of images made by ESA’s robotic spacecraft, ‘Rosetta’. Imagine yourself onboard the spaceship as it approaches, then flies by the asteroid Lutetia further out into our solar system.

    That’s so cool, Sandra. Thanks for sharing.

    though I thought of the Star Wars line ‘That’s no moon. That’s a space station.’ LOL. Yes it’s late.

    Hey, Eleni! Thanks for dropping by. I know your schedule is chock-a-block at the moment. Ah, yes, the original Star Wars, my fave. :) You’ll probably love the new bag I’ve ordered online.
