Description

OSIRIS images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko showing the details of a 500 m-long crack running through the Hapi region. A context image showing the smooth, boulder-strewn Hapi region and the Hathor cliff face to the right is shown in the top left panel. The bottom-left panel indicates the crack extending across Hapi and beyond. The right panel shows the crack where it leaves Hapi and extends into Anuket, with Seth at the uppermost left and Hapi in the lower left.

The images in this montage are also available separately:
Top left: Hapi and Hathor
Bottom left: Crack extension in Hapi
