Abstract This data set contains CODMAC Level 4 data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter ALICE UV Spectrometer during the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko Comet Escort 1 mission phase, which took place between 2014-11-20 and 2015-03-10. The current V3.0 data set supersedes the previous V2.0 data set with improved browse products and documentation.
Description Required Reading The format of all Alice data are described in detail by the EAICD document located in the /DOCUMENT directory. The Alice team strongly recommends reading this documentation before using the data. Data Set Overview = This data set contains reformatted, calibrated data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter ALICE UV Spectrometer during the Comet Escort 1 mission phase, which took place between 2014-11-20 and 2015-03-10. Processing The data in this data set are reformatted, calibrated CODMAC Level 4 data. As such, corrections for detector dead time, dark counts, flatfield, and effective area have generally been applied. The primary FITS header contains a list of which corrections have been applied to that file. See the CALIBRATION_COOKBOOK.PDF in the DOCUMENT directory for more information. 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 = The geometry items SC_SUN_POSITION_VECTOR, SC_TARGET_POSITION_VECTOR and SC_TARGET_VELOCITY_VECTOR provided in the label of the data product are relative to the Earth Mean Equator and Equinox frame of J2000. <>_SPACECRAFT_LATITUDE, <>_SPACECRAFT_LONGITUDE are given in the Cheops reference frame. These parameters are computed at time t=START_TIME. Distances are given in km, angles in degrees. The 67P/C-G_CK comet frame is defined by the kernel file, ROS_CHURYUMOV_V01.TF. Software All FITS readers should be able to successfully read the data. Updates for Volume Version 2 The main correction applied to the data for volume version 2 is a fix to the PIXEL_LIS...

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 [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-5000]. On its long way to the comet nucleus after a Launch by Ariane 5 P1+ in March 2004, the ROSETTA spacecraft orbited the Sun ...
