The Multi-instrument Analysis of Rosetta Data (MiARD) project carried out reseach to provide an integrated description of the physical and chemical properties of the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov- Gerasimenko using date from the Rosetta orbiter and lander (a mission conducted by the European Space Agency). The project, led by the University of Bern in Switzerland, was successfully completed in summer 2018. Documents from the project can be viewed on the EC’s CORDIS website, and publications and shape models are also available from this website under ‘MiARD themes and results’/’Publications and downloads’.

To learn more about the MiARD project, e.g. to find out if a project member near you can give a talk, send email to info@miard.eu . Cartoons explaining the project’s work can be downloaded, and publications and data (including a virtual reality viewer) from the project can be obtained here. After the end of the project, the European Commission published a short summary of the project’s work as a ‘success story‘.
