So today is the crucial day to that Rosetta space craft..
. It is a robotic spacecraft built and launched by the European Space Agency to perform a detailed study of comet "67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko."
This is brief Rosetta space craft history
On March 2, 2004, Rosetta was launched into an orbit that enabled it to chase Earth around the Sun for about a year.
On March 4, 2005, Rosetta caught up with Earth and executed the first of its four gravity assists (three from Earth and one from Mars). This first gravity assist hurled Rosetta toward Mars for its meeting in 2007.
En route to Mars, Rosetta's instruments analyzed the collision between Deep Impact's impactor and comet Tempel-1 on July 4, 2005.
In February 2007, Rosetta executed a close flyby of Mars, which provided the gravity assist it needed to loop back toward Earth for a second flyby in November 2007.
In November 2007, Rosetta executed its second Earth flyby, gaining the gravity assist it needed to pass Mars' orbit and reach the asteroid belt.
On September 5, 2008, Rosetta passed within 1700 km of asteroid Steins, enabling its instruments to closely observe the flying rock.
In November, 2009, Rosetta swung back for a final boost from Earth’s gravity to return again to the asteroid belt.
On July 10, 2010, Rosetta flew within 3000 km of asteroid Lutetia, and again used its instruments to observe at close range this asteroid, ten times larger than Steins.
By May, 2011, Rosetta was coasting through areas in the outer solar system where the sun is almost a billion km away. At that distance, Rosetta’s solar panels are not able to gather much energy from the Sun, so the spacecraft shut down most electrical activities and will hibernate until comet C-G returns from its long transit in the outer solar system.
In January 2014, Rosetta will fire its engine to position itself next to comet C-G in May 2014 as it comes hurtling by. Rosetta will release the Philae for a controlled soft landing on the comet. The Philae will then transmit critical data from the comet’s surface for relay back to Earth. Philae will use harpoons to anchor itself to the comet.
After escorting comet C-G past its perihelion (closest point to the Sun), Rosetta will terminate its mission.
look at that impressive Bio-data of Rosetta., 10 year travel to visit a small island in Space.. just 4 kilometer diameter comet that was discovered in 1969. let us watch some tubes of Rosetta.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuhJN9ILsI8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBfu-M02dTc
Is that not a miracle of Miracles? Now let us read SOME FOOLS who consider silly statements from Quran as Miracle that is related to comet..
And the BIGGST fool in Islam who fools million of Muslim kids is this Criminal Adnan Oktar
from Turkey who gathered internet information collectors to put up that miracles in Quran site
. Look at these fools what they write about comets
from flimsiest words from Quran and they write this nonsense
(Have you not seen how Allah drives the clouds, then gathers them, then makes them layers, you see the rain come forth from between them...) [24:43].
Here Allah Ta'ala is describing the formation of rain clouds and the rainfall from the clouds. This phenomenon is very common and known to the human being. But what is not known to the human beings are the truths that are found in the following ayat from the Noble Qur'an.
(...and caused water to descend from the heavens..) [Surah Baqara:22; Surah Ibrahim; 32; An-Nahl 10 & 65]
Now the question is why does Allah Ta'ala say that He causes the water to descend from the heavens, in contradiction to the An-Nur 24: 43 verse cited above. If carefully studied, the followi:ng verse makes no sense and the disbelievers would belittle the Noble Qur'an word of Allah.
(...He sends down from the heavens from the mountains therein of hail...) [24:43].
Hail is frozen rain or stones of frozen water. This ayah very clearly states that Allah sends down from the heavens mountains containing balls or comets of ice. According to this ayah, mountains of ice or comets of ice are sent down from the heavens (space) towards the earth. Until 1986 this phenomenon was not known to mankind. In 1988 this phenomenon was confirmed scientifically.
Those silly words are supposed to reveal Science of comets.. They didn't even translate that Arabic Quran properly.
These high school drop outs collect that oil money of Arabia and write ., Islam is Allah , Quran has miraculous scientific information hidden in it, and Islam Encourages Scientific Inquiry etc ..etc..
rubbish all over internet. Look at this nonsense from http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/mathematical_05.html
HALLEYS COMET AND 76 YEARS
One of the greatest developments in modern astronomy is the discovery of Halleys Comet. The 18th-century scientist Edmund Halley discovered that the comet comes around every 76 years. With that discovery, Halley established that comets have astronomical orbits.
The name "Halley" by which the comet is known, appears in a most striking way in verse 76 of Surat al-Anam in the Quran:
When night covered him he saw a star and said ;This is my Lord!; Then when it set he said, & I do not love what sets.; (Sura Anam, 76)
These idiots can not even read that verse 76 in Sura Anam properly., It is speaking about a STAR NOT COMET you fools..
fools write nonsense to brain wash internet savvy high school Muslim kids. Mock the and move on..
