The European Space Agency managed to land their probe on comet 67P. Pretty awesome when you consider the comet is moving at 83,885 miles-per-hour which is something like 23 miles per second. Bravo!

At a distance of 500 million Kilometers taking 28 minutes for signals to traverse it is an achievement. Hope it can continue its mission and experiments. It's great that lots of pictures have been succesfully sent.

It reminded me of Avon approaching the asteroid in Stardrive!
