And indeed Contractor’s company, Systems & Materials Research Corporation, just got a six month, $125,000 grant from NASA to create a prototype of his universal food synthesizer.

Today, Science is publishing a suite of new papers detailing some of the mission’s first findings, including discoveries from Rosetta’s main science camera, OSIRIS (Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System). Images like these reveal 67P to be a far more diverse place than anyone expected.

1. Crazy quilt, with a history

Mission scientists have assigned ancient Egyptian names to the different surface regions of the duck-shaped comet.
