On march 2004, the Rosseta probe lifted off en route to comet 67/P, for a two year long investigation of a periodic comet as its orbit will again approach the Sun in 2014-2016. This transmission outlines our current knowledge of comets and how Rosetta will eventually help improving it, after its decade-long journey through interplanetary space.
