Robotic Exploration of the Solar System: Part 4: The Modern by Paolo Ulivi

By Paolo Ulivi

In Robotic Exploration of the sunlight System, Paolo Ulivi and David Harland offer a entire account of the layout and administration of deep-space missions, the spacecraft concerned – a few flown, others now not – their tools, and their clinical results.

This fourth quantity within the sequence covers the interval 2004 to the current day and features:

  • coverage of the Rosetta and Curiosity missions as much as the top of 2013
  • coverage of Mars missions considering the fact that 2005, together with the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Phoenix and Fobos-Grunt, plus an outline of plans for destiny robot exploration of the pink Planet
  • coverage of all planetary missions introduced among 2004 and 2013, together with the Deep Impact cometary undertaking, the MESSENGER Mercury orbiter, the New Horizons Pluto flyby and the Juno Jupiter orbiter
  • the first whole description of the chinese language Chang’e 2 asteroid flyby challenge ever published
  • extensive assurance of destiny missions, together with the ecu BepiColombo Mercury orbiter and foreign plans to revisit the main fascinating moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

As Rosetta receded over the night-side, it took a series of pictures of the crescent planet and Pho bos at angles rarely seen by spacecraft and inaccessible from Earth. Long-exposure views were taken to look for atmospheric night-glow, but ended up being mostly overexposed. Mars and the structure of the Rosetta orbiter in the foreground seen by Philae.

Once the orbiter has delivered the lander and provided relay support, it is expected to conduct a series of observations to map most of the surface of the nucleus, then monitor the active regions and the build-up of the coma as the comet approaches and reaches its 13 August 2015 perihelion. 5 938000 389000 163000 44000 19000 8043 3459 400 100 5 2 1 Rosetta Mission Phases Date Distance (km) Phase 7-15 August 2014 15-23 August 2014 23 August-11 September 2014 11 September-18 November 2014 11 November 2014 60--70 20-40 20 5--10 5-0 Initial characterization Mapping Gravity mapping aose observations Landing 42 New frontiers in the solar system mark 30 years from its conception as the Comet Nucleus Sample Return.

This was just a few kilometers from the closest distance the mission could pass lest the asteroid ftll completely the field of view of the navigation cameras, complicating the autonomous tracking maneuvers. 71 AU from the Sun. Imaging continued for about 18 minutes after closest approach and then, 5 minutes later, the high-gain antenna re-established contact. 5 AU distant, transited the field of view of the narrow-angle camera, placing it just alongside Lutetia. Unlike at Steins, this time the performance of the payload was faultless and a total of 462 images of Lutetia were obtained, in addition to other data.
