The Multi-instrument Analysis of Rosetta Data (MiARD) project seeks 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 will place these properties in the context of other Jupiter family comets using space-borne observatory data, to evaluate what one can learn from the present appearance of comets about the evolutionary history, and prepare a scenario for a future cometary sample return mission.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
(The project logo shows a stylised mapping grid overlaid on the dumbbell-shaped comet.)
The MiARD project will be carried out by a consortium of eight partners which include universities, research institutions and a company.
The Royal Astronomical Society will host a meeting with the title From the Outer to the Inner Solar system: The Origin and Evolution of Comets on 9th February at Burlington House in London, UK. Attendance is free.
