Everyone knows the value of the Pharaonic civilization, and paved the way for a lot of technology of the current era, although the lack of possibilities at the time, so NASA and a number of space agencies chose the names of the Pharaohs and gods to designate their space missions and some of the tools used on trips outside the land, tasks and missions,

Vehicle Rosetta Satellite

Rosetta is a spacecraft launched by the European Space Agency in 2004 to explore a comet P67, and the vehicle reached the comet in 2014, and after landing a month separated from the probe, “Philae”, and that mission is purely Pharaonic mission,

The reason for the naming of the probe as Rosetta is the Rosetta Stone, which was deciphered by Frenchman Champlion and helped to understand the hieroglyphic characters, where scientists had hoped the probe would decipher the mysteries of the solar system and how water was found on Earth.

Comet 67P

After the launch of the Rosetta probe into the comet 67P, Many images were taken to the surface of the comet and sent to Earth. This made the scientists know the details of the entire comet’s surface. They divided the surface into 19 parts and called part of it the name of an ancient Egyptian goddess.

Because of the multiplicity of distinct Pharaonic names, attractive and easy to remember and pronunciation as well, the team chose to choose at first, as p67 It is characterized by many lobes associated together with something resembling the neck, making the larger lobe is the body and the smaller is the head.

The name of the god “Hapi”, the Nile god, was called on the neck. The body was named after other Egyptian names such as Maat and Ash West, the god of evil, Athen, Amhotep, Anubis, God of Death, Hathor, Abyss and Bastet.

Philae probe

Is the probe that descends from the Rosetta vehicle to settle on the surface of the comet to conduct analysis and research on the chemical and physical properties of the comet’s surface and send it to Earth.

The name “Philae” was launched on the probe, because of the island of Philae on the banks of the Nile, and that the task was to include Egyptian scientists.
