BREAKING NEWS: Philae lander from European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission touches down on a comet! #space

Philae lander from European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission touches down on Comet (Follow it live here.)

Just like Philae took a parting shot of the mothership shortly after separation, also Rosetta captured some amazing shots of the lander as it began its seven-hour descent to the surface of the comet.

These images were taken with Rosetta’s OSIRIS imaging system, both with the wide-angle camera and the narrow-angle camera.

The lander separated from the orbiter at 09:03 GMT/10:03 CET and is expected to touch down on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko seven hours later. Confirmation of a successful touchdown is expected in a one-hour window centred on 16:02 GMT / 17:02 CET…..

NOTE: thanks to those who caught my gaff typing “asteroid” earlier, with my favorite correction from Jim Cook: “It’s the difference between shooting a bullet at a train while it’s stopped at the station and hitting it Vs. shooting a bullet at a passing bullet train and catching the bullet in an egg shell while sitting in the 3rd seat from the left in the diner car.” Good point!
