Welcome to a Comet 
Image Credit:  ESA/Rosetta/Philae/CIVA

Explanation:  The Rosetta Mission lander is safely on a comet. One of Philae's feet appears at the bottom left of this  spectacular image of the surface of C67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Still a  happy lander, Philae bounced twice before settling and returning images from the surface, traveling a kilometer or so after initially touching at the  targeted site Agilkia.  A surface panorama suggests that the lander has come to rest tilted and near a shadowing wall, with its solar panels getting less illumination that hoped. Philae's  science instruments are working as planned and data is being relayed during communications windows, when the Rosetta spacecraft is above the  lander's new horizon

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
