Like the spacecraft, the cameras were not designed to land on the comet, and image from close distance. It is therefore spectacular that the images from an altitude of only 20 m (left) and 25 m (right) are still showing sharp contours. In fact the left image shows fantastic detail of the landing area and measures less than a meter from edge to edge. The signal to ESA's Rosetta spacecraft was lost at 10:39:34 UTC.
