Rosetta Prepares for Comet Landing

(YouTube link)

The Rosetta spacecraft will deploy the Philae lander to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on November 12th. The ESA made a charming animation to explain this stage of the mission to all ages. What a cute little Philae lander! -via Laughing Squid

Maybe Rosetta should be renamed Cheborneck. At the 1:17 mark, she takes a swig of comet juice, smiles, and reports back that it smells of rotten eggs, horse pee and formaldehyde. No wonder Philae wants to leave home. That said, I wish them the best of luck.....I'll be watching.
