To celebrate the success of Rosetta and to keep a long-lasting record of its impact on the world, we invite you to share your personal experiences and feelings about how the mission has influenced you.

Perhaps you followed the mission via ESA's Rosetta blog, the news or other social media channels, and found a special link between the spacecraft visiting Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and your own experience.

Maybe you've been stimulated to create art, music or a theatrical production, or perhaps you brought Rosetta into your everyday life at home through creative activities or games with your children. Or did you learn about Rosetta at school? Maybe you based a project on Rosetta and Philae’s adventures, or even made a further education or career choice inspired by the mission.

To get some idea of what you’ve been up to, we invite you to tell us and the world what this extraordinary mission has meant to you over the past few months/years, by contributing to the newly opened Rosetta Legacy tumblr page.

Submissions can be in the form of text, images, video files or links to audio material: anything that expresses your thoughts, feelings or personal experiences inspired by Rosetta.

Each week, we will select up to five spot prizewinners from the most recent submissions to receive a Rosetta and Philae plush toy.

We will accept submissions until 7 October 2016, but those received before 21 September will also be in with a chance to be showcased during the live programme of Rosetta’s end-of mission-event that will be streamed from ESA’s European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany, on 30 September.

In addition, out of all the submitted contributions, ESA will select one top prizewinner who will be invited for a special visit to ESA’s technical heart in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

We look forward to receiving your entries and hearing all about your experience with Rosetta.

Rules regarding the competition aspect of the campaign are provided here.
