ROSINA Results

Rosetta is on its  way to comet Churyumov Gerasimenko!
End of March 2004 the commissioning of the ROSINA instrument started, the first switch-on of the sensors after launch.
2005 the first mass spectra of DFMS and RTOF were received. So far it is just the outgassing of the spacecraft.
