View of several displays in the main control room at ESA's European Space Operations Centre, ESOC, during the final moments before the end of the Rosetta mission. The two central displays show Rosetta's radio signal as received by the ground station. The photo was taken a few minutes before the signal was lost at 11:19 UTC (13:19 CEST) on 30 September 2016, when the Rosetta mission concluded with a controlled impact of the spacecraft onto comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
