I don't use (or condone) FaceBook, but nonetheless I stumbled upon this page from a search: https://www.facebook.com/ISEE3Reboot/photos/a.801544933207256.1073741827.800538433307906/1384594101569000/?type=3

It shows several cute satellites that are purported to have visited comets, or at least were supposed to do so. It appears to be a screenshot from an ESA video.

Any idea what that video might be? A link to it or it's ESA page would be greatly appreciated!

So far I've found one of these cuties in this ESA video linked in this ESA tweet, but still looking for this "family portrait":

The artwork strongly reminds me of the Rosetta mission. So, check out ESA's videos of/on the Rosetta mission.

update: Per @Hobbes' comment, this family portrait is from a series of cartoons ESA commissioned as part of the Rosetta mission. The family portrait appears in 'Once upon a time, Rosetta's grand finale' at 03:27.

    $\begingroup$ No, it shouldn't be left as a comment, because this is the correct answer. This family portrait is from a series of cartoons ESA commissioned as part of the Rosetta mission. The family portrait appears in 'Once upon a time, Rosetta's grand finale at 3:27. esa.int/spaceinvideos/Videos/2016/09/… $\endgroup$ – Hobbes Jul 11 '18 at 7:46

The frame you show appears at timestamp 22:00 of the complete "The amazing adventures of Rosetta and Philae" compilation video.

A similar "family portrait" also appears around timestamp 11:30 of the same video.

The video can also be found on the ESA website, here: https://m.esa.int/spaceinvideos/Videos/2016/12/The_amazing_adventures_of_Rosetta_and_Philae

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for finding the complete version. With comparable answers I tend to accept the one from the newest or lower-rep user. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jul 12 '18 at 23:50
