You've got to admit that it's some achievement to land anything on a comet travelling at that speed.
Apparently, it bounced off at the first attempt, and now that it is down, it's landed in the shade so it's batteries aren't going to recharge so instead of the six months scientific study they were hoping for, they may only get 3 or 4 days.
All that time, distance and money and they still manage to park it in the wrong place.

Yeah, I know what you mean. The only picture they did show was of the lander descending but even that looked a bit like a 70's 'space invader'.
With all the preconceived theories that comets are predominantly iron ore and ice, you'd have thought they could have used some form of magnetism to keep the lander on course, but still, some of the pictures taken by Rosetta, you would have thought that it could've taken something better of the descent and landing of Philae.
You can't argue though, it's not bad for a first attempt and in the future they're bound to get a lot more accurate with what's possible, depending of course on whether or not it's worth trying a second attempt with what this mission finds.

im not disputing the fact is it's a step in the right direction , you know the conspirators will say it's fake, even with the actual landing it's still a fake to them.

i always thought comets where mostly ice as well, guess this comet is one of those that can cause major damage a asteroid damage but a city killer.
now we can get data back and prepare for any future threats from such objects.

also who doesnt like a game of Asteroids-RPG. Even if t is a remake. Cool Cool Cool

Yep definitely faked. Just like the moon landings, although Stanley Kubrick did 'confess all' in The Shining about filming the Apollo fakes.

It's a good laugh if nothing else this story, someone had way too much time on their hands dreaming that lot up.

I believe we landed on the cheese moon for the simple fact that we where in a race with the Russians and it would of been in Russia's best interest to point it out.

They said we did and even then it's still not good for most..

Does anyone know the trajectory of this thing? Seems like soooo Bruce Willis in Armageddon to me. Hahaha.

* conspiracy theories abound *

But on a serious note... they have now drilled into the surface... shortly before hibernating.

They have also managed to adjust its position somewhat and so in 2015 it may get a chance to recharge via solar panels.

Not sure if this is Entertainment or Science... hang on I'll take a reading...

We were wrong about this one. It's not a fake, we really have landed a probe onto a comet. Apparently though, this 'comet' is actually an alien spaceship that has been broadcasting radio signals for the past twenty years.

Just once, I'd like something to be what it really is and not have to have a conspiracy theory behind it, or should I just sit and wait for Master Chief Spartan 117 to jump out of the lander with a rocket launcher and start blasting everything to bits.

I tell you what though... that "singing" sounds an awful lot like Flight Of The Bumble Bee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.




Maybe they're killer bees. Perish the thought.

Killer bees are no problem. We'll just send Lonny's Lizard ovelords after them. They can finish them off for dinner before conquering the rest of the galaxy.

Last week this news was coming...

Philae is out of battery, so the lander has fallen asleep. All instruments and most systems are off until there is enough sunlight on the solar panels to generate the lander.

I find it incredible, spent SO MUCH money and then what's standing here above. Shocked
