First satellite lands on comet
The European Space Agency succeeded in landing a spacecraft on a comet for the first time in history.
The European Space Agency on Wednesday successfully landed the Philae probe on comet 67P/Churyumov—Gerasimenko. The audacious landing attempt is the climax of a decade-long mission to link up with the giant ball of dust and ice.
The landing on the speeding comet marks the highlight of the decade-long Rosetta spacecraft’s mission to study comets and learn more about the origins of these celestial bodies.
Scientists hope that the data collected by the probe will provide insights into the origins of comets and other objects in the universe
