The baseline model payload of Rosetta includes a visual infrared spectral and thermal mapper among the instruments on board the spacecraft orbiting around the comet. This instrument will allow the following scientific goals to be achieved: to characterise the nucleus surface composition (concentration of the ices, mineralogical composition of dust, characteristics of organic compounds); to determine the surface temperature distribution and the dust and gas distribution in the inner cometary… Expand
