The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Geraint Jones, Dr Matthew Knight, Professor Alan Fitzsimmons and Dr Matt Taylor.

Results from the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko are leading to a revolution in our understanding of these ancient bodies, and hence the conditions prevalent in the early Solar System. This meeting will report on all aspects of the mission’s ground-breaking discoveries, placing them in the context of cometary science as a whole.
