NASA Statement on Successful Rosetta Comet Landing

The following statement is from John Grunsfeld , astronaut and associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington , about the successful comet landing by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft:

"We congratulate ESA on their successful landing on a comet today. This achievement represents a breakthrough moment in the exploration of our solar system and a milestone for international cooperation.

"The data collected by Rosetta will provide the scientific community, and the world, with a treasure-trove of data. Small bodies in our solar system like comets and asteroids help us understand how the solar system formed and provide opportunities to advance exploration. We look forward to building on Rosetta's success exploring our solar system through our studies of near earth asteroids and NASA's upcoming asteroid sample return mission OSIRIS-REx. It's a great day for space exploration."
