Source - NASA Science News for Dec. 19, 2014
European Space Agency’s orbiting Rosetta spacecraft is expected to come
within four miles of the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko in
February 2015. The low flyby will be an opportunity for Rosetta to
obtain imagery with a resolution of a few inches per pixel.
