We (humans) landed a probe on a comet?  Holy smokes!

Also – check out the path the satellite had to follow to finally land on the comment.  I think math and computers  were involved in determining that trajectory.

Wow. (Image from NYT.com)

Here is the link to the NYT story and some images of the first comet on which humans have landed a probe.  Science, it’s amazing – even when it’s the Euro’s doing the work.  Kudos Europe!

  1. I was wondering at first if one would be the comet, and the other would be the accord between China and the U.S about accepting science and start facing up to climate change! Both rather amazing actually.
