...keep doing stuff like this:
http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/11/12/science/space/rosetta-philae-comet-landing.html

I don't know about anyone else, but I found that awesome to behold. Bravo, ESA!

And here's an NYT article about it, as well, as a wonderful touch of the modern. Even if I think Twitter is kind of silly, if this draws more people into science, I'm all for it.

D-man this is the kind of news I delight in, not wars or rummer of wars. The news agencies are all over this, this week, then back to some woman’s bare arse or breasts.

It seems absolutely incredible that humankind can send a relatively tiny hunk of metal out into the void and have it successfully rendezvous with a relatively tiny chunk of rock moving at 135,000 Km/h.

So... do you think the ESA used the same studio where NASA faked the moon landing? [Big Grin]

Nah, it got converted to a Costco years ago, budget cuts.
That stuff's all CGI these days.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
