Yup, there's a team led by Peter Jenniskens (who regularly does this during meteor showers) going up.

I think I read somewhere that a plane's going up too, to observe the re-entry with special 'scopes and cameras...?


Sure enough,

ESA Space Trajectory Analysis Tool Released
"STA project is an original idea of the Technical Directorate of ESA. Born in Aug 2005, it provides a framework in astrodynamics research at University level.
As research software applicable to Academia, a number of Universities support this development by joining ESA in leading the development."



"The STA project allows a strong link among these disciplines by reinforcing the academic community with requirements and needs coming from space agencies and industry real needs and missions."

STA WIKI

(ADMINS - Not sure if this is the best thread for this - thought we had a Software forum, but other than the imaging one I can't seem to find it)

I wasn't intending to break any dishes, just have a quiet word with a few people in a corner of the kitchen while someone mopped up sick in the hallway... wink.gif


Well, it's been a year or so since you posted this...
I have a routine every morning I start my work since, I guess, 2004 or 2005...Check the APOD page, check the MER page, check the Cassini page, check the ESA website, been following daily the Phoenix page and, at least weekly, the MRO page. And since september or october last year, the UMSF page...
But, honestly, I don't remember any news about Rosetta reaching asteroid Steins, or any picture of the asteroid. That would have been something to remember.
Well, I've just searched the news archive and found this: http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEM5EZO4KKF_index_0.html
This is from september '08 and it's the last news about Rosetta. And yes...only the artist's impression of Rosetta in the news article, no picture of the asteroid and no follow-up with pictures of the asteroid (allowing them the time to process the images, like they said in the news article).
It seems that 2008 was not the year for a big change of PR for ESA....

If you see me posting monday to friday between 8 a.m. CET and 6 p.m. CET, chances are I'm at work... not doing my job!
If you see me posting outside this interval, chances are I'm at home... and should really be working for my PhD!

Well you obviously didn't look very hard. rolleyes.gif

http://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/Rosetta/SEMNMYO4KKF_0.html

You must have missed it on APOD the day after the flyby.

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap080908.html

P.S. You should add the Planetary society blog to your list of daily reading.

http://www.planetary.org/blog/article/00001637/

And we have a 265 entry thread about the flyby here at UMSF

The PR for Rosetta reaching asteroid Steins was, I think, ESA's best efforts to date.
There was a live press conference broadcast on the web and presumably replayed on European TV at some point.
There were images available almost immediately both at the press conference and online.
They did great coverage on the ESA website http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEMNMYO4KKF_index_0.html
We covered it on UMSF for anyone not watching the webcast http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...5256&st=105
(Doug and I were practically in a race to see who would hit the 'post' button first with the latest screen captured image).

The coverage was great I thought. IMHO.

Oops! My bad.
I've seen it on the Focus on section! Forgot about that unsure.gif ohmy.gif (and I'm only 28).
And I thought at the time that it was a really good looking piece of space rock!

As for the Planetary society blog....well, I'm checking it from time to time...but you do realize that just checking 5, 6 to 8 pages daily is taking enough of my work time...and like my signature says....well, I really should be working!
I guess I'll change the MER page for the Planetary society blog sometimes in the future...

Oh my, oh my!...
I've just realized last night why I forgot Rosetta's encounter with asteroid Steins...
That happened in the beginning of september...when me and fiance just moved to our new flat on august the first, got a visit for about a week from my parents (which were 5 mm close to death on the way to us because of a sleepy truck driver), than, after another week, got again a visit from may parents, than start planning our wedding (on the 27th of september biggrin.gif) ...you know, stick to the budget, make your medical exams, search for a place...unpacking all the things in the new flat (by the way, finally, last week I found my cats' vaccinations records)...no wander I forgot about an encounter with an asteroid...

Well, you've listed a few things you can't blame the ESA for.
