Science special issue: Philae's first look

This page contains open-access links to scientific papers published on 31 July 2015 in the Science special issue: Philae's first look.


About the cover

This set of reports and research articles present early results from Philae's first suite of scientific observations of Comet 67P/Churyumov­-Gerasimenko.

Science also published a special issue (Catching a comet) in January 2015, featuring some of the first science results from the Orbiter instruments. Papers from that issue can be accessed here
