UPDATE 12 NOV 2014 11:12AM (EST): THEY DID IT!
Tomorrow, the Philae lander detaches from the ESA Rosetta spacecraft and attempts to touch down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko at Site J. A successful landing will be one of the great feats of human scientific exploration.
A webcast of the landing attempt will begin at 2PM (ET) today (ie, now).
Instead of waiting to post pictures, we are going to be optimistic and start with this LEGO build from Stefan Schindler showing the Philae lander resting comfortably on the comet’s surface. More to come…
