Landing on a Comet -- November 16, 2014

European Space Agency
I remember when the European Space Agency launched Rosetta in 2004.  Last week, Rosetta met with Comet 67P and lauched the Philae lander. Philae reached the surface of the comet safely, but in the shadow of a cliff, so its solar panels are not helping to recharge the battery. This is still a wonderful accomplishment for the human race. I wish America could get people excited about space again.
