This image from Rosetta's OSIRIS narrow-angle camera shows part of a large fracture in the neck of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

This OSIRIS narrow-angle camera image shows part of a large fracture running across Comet neck, in particular where it has left Hapi and is extending into Anuket. In this orientation, the Seth region is at the uppermost left and Hapi in the lower left.

The Rosetta spacecraft hasn’t been in the news much lately, but wow, is it the gift that keeps on giving. Check out this magnificent view of the comet looking past the Seth region on the big lobe to the towering Hathor cliffs on the small one: Oh, my.

Is Rosetta's comet falling apart? - Just as we are really getting to known comet 67P, it may be leaving us. The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission is currently visiting the “Rubber Ducky” comet and newly released images show a meter-wide crack running over 100 meters (328 feet) along the comet’s “neck” that could lead to its disintegration.

Rosetta : fractures et fissures à la surface de la comète Tchouri

Après une descente pleine de suspense, Philae a rebondi sur la comète, puis s'est retrouvé coincé entre deux falaises dans un endroit peu éclairé, l'empêchant d'exploiter ses capteurs solaires. Le robot s'est alors plongé dans une veille dont il sortira en mars, à la faveur d'une meilleure exposition. Avant de s'endormir, il a tout de même immortalisé la vue dont il jouit sur Tchouri. L'un de ses pieds est visible en bas à gauche de l'image.

OSIRIS wide-angle camera image taken on 16 July 2016, when Rosetta was 12.8 km from the centre of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The scale is 0.22 m/pixel at the comet and the image measures about 450 m.

Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera captured this image of Comet at GMT from an altitude of about km during the spacecraft’s final descent on 30 September. The image scale is about cm/pixel and the image measures about 33 m across.

Comet 67P/C-G on 4 July 2016, viewed with Rosetta's OSIRIS wide-angle camera, 13.3 km away. The full comet measures about 4 km across, and this image measures about 2.6 km.  http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2016/07/Comet_on_4_July_2016_OSIRIS_wide-angle_camera  Credits: ESA/Rosetta/MPS for OSIRIS Team MPS/UPD/LAM/IAA/SSO/INTA/UPM/DASP/IDA

The historic Rosetta mission has finally come to an end. Over the past two years, the probe’s many instruments have scanned virtually every nook and cranny of this weirdly shaped rock, unleashing a treasure trove of new information about comets in general, and 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko in particular.
