Preserving Rosetta’s data

Laurence O’Rourke, ESA Rosetta Downlink Science Operations Manager, talks to ESA Web TV about the ongoing work on Rosetta’s archive even years after the last data have been collected at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. He describes the work that goes into processing the data – whether images, spectra or plasma data for example – and presenting it in an easy-to-access format. A new function of the Planetary Science Archive, the online interface for scientists who use observations from ESA’s planetary missions for their research, has recently been added, designed to facilitate the search process of data collected by ESA’s missions past, present and future.
