The European Space Agency (ESA) is an intergovernmental organisation dedicated to the exploration of space

Rosetta was launched on 2 March 2004 from the Guiana Space Centre in French Guiana on an Ariane 5 rocket and reached Comet Churyumov–Gerasimenko on 6 August 2014,[15] becoming the first spacecraft to orbit a comet.
