Space Science with Python — A comet in 3 D

  • Shape models of the comet 67P have also been derived by the so-called Navigation Cameras (NAVCAM) that were used to determine the spacecraft’s orientation in space.
  • In our case, we have a shape model of the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko (CG) from the Rosetta mission (ROS).
  • There are at least 1 million plates (faces) in the data set (M0001), derived from the OSIRIS camera (O) with a so-called Stereo Photo Clinometry (SPC) method by the Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Marseille + Planetary Science Institute (LPS): OSPCLPS.
  • Scientists have worked hundreds of hours to derive this scientifically highly accurate shape model after waiting for years to reach the comet!
  • We will work with this model and derive some more parameters like the entire surface of the comet and we will also work with the coordinate system of 67P.
