(comet visited by Rosetta space mission)

67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P or 67P/C-G) is a Comet discovered in 1967 in an orbit ranging from 1.2AU to 5.7AU from the Sun. It was visited by the European Space Agency mission Rosetta, which was launched in 2004 and reached the comet in 2014. A new plan (CAESAR) is in development for a mission to bring back a sample.
