Adorable Cartoons Help Explain Rosetta, Philae, and Comet 67P to My Future Astronaut

Adorable Cartoons Help Explain Rosetta, Philae, and Comet 67P to My Future Astronaut

I may have mentioned on here once or twice about that my 6 year-old Tucker has, for some time now, had his sights set on a future career as an astronaut. The dream lives on, and so I was really excited to be able to share with him yesterday in the excitement over the successful landing of the Philae lander on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

Part of the reason Tucker was excited about this mission is because the ESA (European Space Agency) created a fantastic animated series about it, that we have watched together a few times.

I don’t know why it just occurred to me to share this here, but if you have a kid who is curious what all the excitement is about, give these a watch together. You just might learn something too. 🙂

Part 1: Fabulous Fables and Tales of Tails

 

Part 2: Once Upon a Time…

 

Part 3: Are We There Yet?

 

Part 4: Preparing for Comet Landing

Now that Philae has landed on the surface, hopefully they put together some adorable animation about that too soon. If they do, I’ll be sure to add it here!
