ROSETTA SPACECRAFT ENTERS FINAL STAGE OF COMET CRASH MISSION
Scientists behind the historic Rosetta mission have said their goodbyes to the spacecraft as it entered the final stage of its kamikaze descent on to a comet.
The £1 billion quest to 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is due to end with a crunch at around 11.38am UK time on Friday.
Rosetta will share its resting place with a tiny lander it dispatched onto the surface nearly two years ago, spelling the end of the daring expedition that began in 2004.
