On the nucleus structure and activity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
TLDR
Images from the OSIRIS scientific imaging system onboard Rosetta show that the nucleus of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko consists of two lobes connected by a short neck, which raises the question of whether the two Lobes represent a contact binary formed 4.5 billion years ago, or a single body where a gap has evolved via mass loss.

Subsurface properties and early activity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
TLDR
Subsurface temperatures showed seasonal and diurnal variations, which indicated that the submillimeter radiation originated at depths comparable to the diurnal thermal skin depth of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Expand
Structure of the Vesicular Stomatitis Virus N0-P Complex
TLDR
The structural characterization of a soluble, heterodimeric complex between a variant of vesicular stomatitis virus N and a peptide of 60 amino acids encompassing the molecular recognition element (MoRE) of P that binds RNA-free N (N0) suggests a mechanism for the initiation of viral RNA synthesis.

The organic-rich surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as seen by VIRTIS/Rosetta
TLDR
The VIRTIS instrument on board the Rosetta spacecraft has provided evidence of carbon-bearing compounds on the nucleus of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and no ice-rich patches are observed, indicating a generally dehydrated nature for the surface currently illuminated by the Sun. Expand
Spectrophotometric properties of the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from the OSIRIS instrument onboard the ROSETTA spacecraft
The Rosetta mission of the European Space Agency has been orbiting the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P) since August 2014 and is now in its escort phase. A large complement of scientificExpand
Distribution of water around the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko at 3.4 AU from the Sun as seen by the MIRO instrument on Rosetta
The Microwave Instrument on the Rosetta Orbiter (MIRO) has been observing the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko almost continuously since June 2014 at wavelengths near 0.53 mm. We present hereExpand
Direct Simulation Monte Carlo modelling of the major species in the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
We analyze the ROSINA-DFMS data between August 2014 and February 2016 to examine the effect of seasonal variations on the four major species within the coma of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (H2O, CO2,Expand
Spatial and diurnal variation of water outgassing on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko observed from Rosetta/MIRO in August 2014
Aims. We present the spatial and diurnal variation of water outgassing on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko using the (H2O)-O-16 rotational transition line at 556.936 GHz observed from Rosetta/MIRO inExpand
Nucleocapsid assembly in pneumoviruses is regulated by conformational switching of the N protein
Non-segmented, (-)RNA viruses cause serious human diseases. Human metapneumovirus (HMPV), an emerging pathogen of this order of viruses (Mononegavirales) is one of the main causes of respiratoryExpand
Three-dimensional direct simulation Monte-Carlo modeling of the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko observed by the VIRTIS and ROSINA instruments on board Rosetta
Since its rendezvous with comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P), the Rosetta spacecraft has provided invaluable information contributing to our understanding of the cometary environment. On board,Expand
