Astronomy Science ~ remarkable new picture of the Rosetta spacecraft has revealed the comet's surface that has never been seen before. In this image, the details can be seen - including the rocks on the surface and dust moving across the plains. This latest image taken from a distance of 9.8 km from the center of the comet.

Four new images have been released and have been combined into a single image mosaic. The scale in this figure is about 26 inches (66 centimeters) per pixel.
This mosaic image covers an area about 3,940 to 4,430 feet (1,200 to 1,350 meters) on the surface of the comet.

Esa added that he explained the image a bit misleading, because the comet is actually blacker than coal.
In order to make the features can be seen, the picture is made in gray and is also set to high contrast to make them look brighter.

It is a mosaic of the surface of comet 67P images taken by the Rosetta spacecraft from a distance of 9.8 km.
This detailed image also shows two rocks right under the center of the mosaic, one of the heart-shaped rock visible from this vantage point. If enlarged, the stone is seen emerging from under a layer of dust and also seen some smaller rocks around them.

In this picture also can see the mysterious stone pyramid-shaped previously discovered by ESA. This object can be seen just above the middle of the mosaic. With a height of about 82 feet (25 meters), this structure is one of the big rocks seen on comets and may help scientists better understand its history.
