UK contribution

The UK, as a major contributor to ESA and a significant developer of space technology and instrumentation, is a significant contributor to the Rosetta project. The UK’s contribution covers a multitude of activities, including the science and engineering of the mission itself, as well as funding of the mission and the outreach associated with it. As a result the UK contribution includes universities, industry and educators, as well as the government organisations that provide the funding.
