Trailer: LANDING ON A COMET – The Rosetta Mission

Few things could be more fascinating or demanding in the history of European space travel than the Rosetta comet mission. Launched on 2 March 2004, the spacecraft set off on its 10-year journey to the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko .
The lander, Philae, will separate from its parent craft on 12 November 2014, touch down on the comet and immediately fire harpoons to anchor itself on the surface. The two spacecraft will then accompany the comet on its month-long journey to the point at which it is closest to the Sun.

The Tsar Bomba 1961

Credit: Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie (1995) by Peter Kuran

Tsar Bomba (Russian: Царь-бомба), literally “Tsar-bomb,” is the nickname for the RDS-220 hydrogen bomb (codenamed “Ivan” by its developers)—the largest, most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated.

Developed by the Soviet Union, the bomb was originally designed to have a yield of about 100 megatons of TNT; however, the bomb was reduced by half in order to limit the amount of nuclear fallout that would result. One bomb was built and tested on October 30, 1961, in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. The weapon never entered service.

A mock bomb was stored in the Russian Nuclear Weapons Museum in Sarov.
