Hook-up with Rosetta is a European campaign for science centres and museums about on the European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission. It is coordinated by Ecsite – the European Network of Science Centres and Museums – and supported by the European Space Agency (ESA). The campaign has been built by the Ecsite Space Group, a special interest group of institutions involved in space science communication.

The objective of the campaign is to raise awareness among the public, build understanding and provoke dialogue on:

  • Rosetta – Europe’s comet chaser
  • Did comets bring water to the Earth?
  • Rosetta, revealing the nature of comets – the oldest building blocks of our solar system
  • Space science, comet science and the exploration of the solar system

Science centres and museums are invited to organize activities and events touching on the mission’s key facts and milestones.

The updated kit contains:

  • The Hook up with Rosetta exhibition, available in English, French and Spanish
    • ​6 exhibition panels are also available in German, thanks to the efforts of the Center for Space and Habitability at the University of Bern, Switzerland
  • Rosetta and the Time Capsule, a learning activity complete with videos and presentation slides
  • 5 workshops guidelines for hand-on activities about rockets, robotics, orbits and much more
