Shame

I liked the idea of having Rosetta in a parking orbit. Firstly because of the mental image of it flying off through the solar system. Secondly, it would be interesting to see if it returned intact. It may not be functioning but it would be a memorial to human ingenuity. Being made of metal I wonder if it could be detected by radar from Earth.
