Strange Comet Discoveries Revealed by Rosetta Spacecraft It's craggy, powdery, mysterious, and even holds the building blocks of life. Scientists are now getting an up-close-and-personal view of a comet flying through deep space, thanks to Europe's Rosetta spacecraft. The Rosetta mission has now found that Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko's is  even stranger than initially expected.

Rosetta Spacecraft Picks Up a Mysterious Song From Comet 67P - As ESA's Rosetta spacecraft prepared to dispatch its Philae lander to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, a set of instruments on Rosetta picked up a mysterious "song" from the comet. Neutral particles released into space by the comet may becoming electrically charged or ionized. The mechanism behind the oscillations remains a mystery
