Abstract This data set contains CODMAC level 2 data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter ALICE UV Spectrometer during the second earth swing-by phase of the Rosetta mission, which occurred 2007-09-13 to 2007-12-13. In addition to the second swingby of the Earth, this period includes the active payload checkout #6 (PC6). The observations made during the period covered by this data set are primarily designed to improve the calibration of the Alice instrument.
Description Required Reading The format of all Alice data are described in detail by the EAICD document located in the /DOCUMENT directory. In addition, the Rosetta Alice logbook file, RA_LOGBOOK_NNN.ASC, also located in the /DOCUMENT directory provides observational details such as observation target, commanded exposure time, etc., for all Alice data. The Alice team strongly recommends reading this documentation before using the data. Data Set Overview = This data set contains unprocessed data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter ALICE UV Spectrometer during the first earth swing-by phase of the Rosetta mission, which occurred September 13, 2007 to December 4, 2005. Observations of calibration targets were made during this mission phase. A detailed listing of all Alice observations is given in the observation log file located in the DOCUMENT directory. Processing The data in this data set are unprocessed, CODMAC Level 2 data. No calibration or data processing have been applied. In the Alice file nomenclature, this is noted by the 'ENG' in the filename. Data The data are in FITS format and text format. Each FITS file has a detached PDS label so that they can be read either by FITS or PDS tools. A detailed description of the data format is given in the ALICE EAICD document located in the DOCUMENT directory of this data set. Ancillary Data No ancillary data included in this data set. Coordinate System = There is no particular coordinate system associated with this data set. Software All FITS readers should be able to successfully read the data.

The spacecraft carries a Rosetta Lander, named Philae, to the nucleus and deploys it onto its surface. A brief description of the mission and its objectives can be found in the Rosetta Science Management Plan [RO-EST-PL-0001] and in papers [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the Consolidated Report on Mission Analysis [RO-ESC-RP-5500], the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-50...
