10 years later, Rosetta hooks up with icy comet

The European Space Agency says that after a 10-year journey taking in some 3.5 billion miles its Rosetta spacecraft has entered into orbit around a comet known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

The two will now travel the solar system together as they journey toward the sun.

Rosetta will take pictures along the way.
