ROSINA (Rosetta Orbiter Spectrometer for Ion and Neutral Analysis) contains two sensors which will determine the composition of the comet's atmosphere and ionosphere, the velocities of electrified gas particles, and reactions in which they take part. It will also investigate possible asteroid outgassing.

Principal Investigator: Kathrin Altwegg, Universität Bern, Switzerland.
