Holy S*** We Landed a Spacecraft on a Comet

Humankind made history this morning when the Rosetta mission made the first-ever landing on a comet. Just a couple minutes after 8:00 a.m. PST/11:00 a.m. EST, the European Space Agency received confirmation that after a roughly 7-hour descent, the mission’s lander craft, named Philae, touched down on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

The story is too old to be commented.

So they hit a comet with a really slow moving missile. Big f*ing deal. LMK when you can get a space craft into orbit without spending half a billion dollars and 50 thousand kg of ammonium nitrate. Better yet, LMK when you can get a space craft out of the solar system without it taking 200 years. Our space industry is still a helpless little baby trying to find a way off its knees, and it is not at all impressive.

Start working more on EmDrive and maybe eventually something worth note will occur. (Hoverquads with EmDrive anyone?) Always wanted my own podracer.
