A Stunning Rosetta Selfie, Taken 250 Million Miles Away From Earth

Recently the European Space Agency used one of its cameras on Rosetta's Philae lander to take this stunning selfie, with comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko observable only 31 miles far. The photo displays a side of the Rosetta spacecraft and also captures one of its 45-ft-long solar sections. This stunning selfie was taken with the Comet Infrared and Visible Analyzer, which is one of 10 tools Philae will use to study Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet after it lands on its surface.
