Poetry and science: Cosmic Rendezvous

It’s kind o’ romantic! ~ TV news anchor

Somewhere between Jupiter and Mars

after 10 years, 5 months and 4 days

of chasing, looping the sun,

after thousands of space snaps,

a series of flybys,

mapping and measuring,

spinning its wings,

Rosetta’s in orbit over Chury.
