In 2014, Rosetta spacecraft became the first spacecraft to orbit a comet and bring us stunning images of its surface. In 2016, it made its final maneuver when it hard-landed the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The Rosetta’s comet mission gave us over 400,000 images, and motion designer Christian Stangl and composer Wolfgang Stangl joined forces to turn them into this breathtaking video.

Rosetta probe was launched in 2004 from the Guiana Space Centre. Ten years later, it reached its destination and spent two years orbiting around it. In November 2014, a small lander was released onto the comet’s surface. Rosetta continued to study all aspects of the comet and its environment until the mission ended in September 2016.

A video from Rosetta’s images was made before, but it only lasts one second. Christian Stangl put together these images into a much longer (and truly stunning) video using the images from ESA’s archive. Wolfgang Stangl made the soundtrack, and I’d say it contributes to the video immensely. So, put your headphones on and prepare to be blown away by this gorgeous view of another, mysterious world.

    Beautiful, but adding stabilization would have been great and easy.
