- Wikipedia ASWAN, Egypt, July 16 (MENA) - Aswan Governor Ahmed Ibrahim said that coordination is underway with the Ministry of Tourism to turn the Temple of Philea area into an open tourist attraction for different kinds of tourism.
The MASCOT lander used the same battery type as the 2014s Rosetta mission, when the European Consortiums Philae
lander touched down on a comet 720 million km from Earth.
"This formation scenario leads to a cometary make-up that is simultaneously compatible with the global porosity, homogeneity, tensile strength, thermal inertia, vertical temperature profiles, sizes and porosities of emitted dust, and the steep increase in water-vapor production rate with decreasing heliocentric distance, measured by the instruments on-board the Rosetta spacecraft and the Philae
lander," according to (https://academic.oup.com/mnras/article-abstract/doi/10.1093/mnras/stx2741/4564447/Evidence-for-the-formation-of-comet-67P-Churyumov?redirectedFrom=fulltext) the paper titled "Evidence for the formation of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko through gravitational collapse of a bound clump of pebbles."
After countless hours spent planning and executing how to put a spacecraft in orbit around an irregularly shaped and unpredictably temperamental nucleus, we found ourselves with time to dig deeply into the treasure trove of data that Rosetta and its lander, Philae
, had returned to us.
Scientists chose to crash Rosetta on the smaller of the three-mile-long, rubber duck-shaped comet's two lobes, just a few miles from where its tiny lander Philae
is still lodged in a deep crevice.
The probe and its lander Philae
backed up the theory that comet impacts may have seeded Earth with water and the ingredients for life.

has been found, nestled in a shadowy crevice on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
SCIENTISTS will be sifting through the wealth of data and images sent back to Earth by Rosetta and its Philae
lander for decades to come.
The device, called Philae
, landed on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November 2014, but its battery fell dead three days later.
EUROPE'S Rosetta space probe has located its lost Philae
lander, wedged in a "dark crack" on a comet, the European Space Agency (ESA) said.
High-resolution cameras on the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft have found space probe Philae
, which landed on a comet nearly two years ago only to lose power because its solar-driven batteries were in the shade.
