Abstract This data set contains Spectroscopic and Continuum data, in the form of table files, taken during the third Earth swing-by phase of the Rosetta mission by the MIRO instrument.
Description Data Set Overview = This dataset contains data generated by MIRO during the Earth Swing-by 2 mission phase of Rosetta. These data cover the following periods and activities: (All are in 2009, so Year is omitted from dates.) Start Time Stop Time Activity (mm-ddThh:mm) (mm-ddThh:mm) 11-08T03:10 11-08T07:10 Raster scan of Moon while unresolved, in order to determine MIRO boresight position (MR04A). 11-13T05:20 11-13T14:30 Observations of Earth. 11-13T15:40 11-13T18:20 Observations of Moon. 11-18T03:10 11-18T07:10 Raster scan of Moon while unresolved, in order to determine MIRO boresight position (MR04A). Operations on 2009-11-13 (DOY 317): The sequences dedicated to MIRO were (1) an Earth stare offset from nadir by about 11 degrees (to keep solar elongation < 140 deg.), from 07:20 to 08:20 (MR02), and (2) a dwell on the Moon's limb near the North Pole, from 17:20 to 18:20 (MR03), in order to search for H2O. However, outside these sequences, the MIRO instrument remained on during several maneuvers riding along with other instruments, gathering data, which are included in the files in the DATA subdirectory. Author List = The author list in the CITATION_DESC includes only those persons who worked on preparing this archive dataset for delivery. The full list of all persons involved in the MIRO experiment is (taken from the GULKISETAL2007 reference): S.

The spacecraft carries a Rosetta Lander, named Philae, to the nucleus and deploys it onto its surface. A brief description of the mission and its objectives can be found in the Rosetta Science Management Plan [RO-EST-PL-0001] and in papers [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the Consolidated Report on Mission Analysis [RO-ESC-RP-5500], the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-50...
