Abstract

The Rosetta spacecraft (S/C), which is planned to meet comet 46P/Wirtanen in 2011, will carry a set of five wave and plasma instruments (i.e. the Rosetta Plasma Consortium). This is to measure the cometary plasma properties from the minimum value of activity of the comet to its maximum value at perihelion. The mutual impedance probe, MIP, is one of those (Trotignon et al., 1999) five.
