CTV News:

BERLIN -- The European Space Agency has set a tentative date for the first landing of a spacecraft on a comet.
ESA says its Rosetta probe will wake up from hibernation Jan. 20 before chasing down comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'll be paying some close attention to this when it happens. Sure would be cool if they're successful.

The first thing that comes to my mind is space surfing with comets xD
Anyway, curious to see what will happen
