    That's just amazing. The amount of planning that goes into those multiple planet slingshots is just astronomical.

    There are 4 billion lights. That's pretty awesome, we only usually see the day side.

    Look foward to see Rosetta's arrival on the Gerasimenko comet

    The pic was taken from 50,000 miles away - I think it turned out pretty good!
