The Rosetta-Philae cometmission as physics appreciation
This essay will show that with no more than simple school algebra and a willingness to wrestle with symbols and simple relations (equations) among them, anyone can appreciate further patterns beyond the purely visual. Far from any diminishing or ‘taking away the poetry in Nature’, this can only but add to our understanding and delight in the patterns that our senses have found striking.
