The Rubber Duck

I saw this gif on reddit today showing the flight path of the Rosetta Satellite. It is extraordinary that the European Space Agency (ESA) scientists/mathematicians planned out a 10 year journey though space to send a satellite to meet up with a rubber duck shaped piece of rock traveling at about 135,000 kilometers per hour in the far reaches of our solar system. Congratulations to you!

If you have any questions about the mission, the ESA probably answered it here.
