The first true color image of comet 67P taken by the Rosetta spacecraft

The first true color image of comet 67P taken by the Rosetta spacecraft

Until now, all photos of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko have been in greyscale. According to a research paper that will be presented at the American Geophysical Union's 2014 Fall Meeting, you are looking at its first true color photo, taken with Rosetta's OSIRIS camera.

The reason why the image is blurred is because the comet moved between exposures, as a Reddit user showed by separating the RGB (Red, Gren, and Blue) channels in the composite color image and making this animated GIF:

Here's the same photo sharpened and color corrected, made by another Redditor:

For reference, this is a color photo of Mars taken by Rosetta's OSIRIS camera using the same multiple exposure technique:

That changed dramatically late on Sunday and in the early hours of Monday, when protesters and police clashed in the most violent incidents that the “umbrella movement” has seen since it started in late September.

Dozens of people were arrested, and dozens more injured in the clashes, which began late Sunday after student leaders urged demonstrators to block the city's main government offices in an attempt to press for concessions in their demands for more democracy. Read more...

Everyone is commiserating on Twitter after 'The Walking Dead' midseason finale


WARNING: This story contains spoilers from The Walking Dead's midseason finale. Do not read if you have not watched.

We knew something horrible was going to happen in Sunday night's midseason finale of The Walking Dead. We'd, frankly, be a little disappointed if everything turned a-ok for everyone. (Boring.)

But even with these expectations for terrible events, we weren't quite ready for what transpired.
