So while we apparently have reached out to the heavens and landed on a comet, there is still so much to learn about these mysterious travelers. Ten years from it’s initial launch, the Rosetta mission has officially landed.
You can find out all about the Philae Lander and it’s successful mission over at EarthSky in the article “Rosetta Mission Places Philae Lander On it’s Comet“. You can also learn more about the history of the mission in the article entitled “Philae Lander Nears a Cosmic Touchdown” by Kenneth Chang at the New York Times.
Now of course, there is also a lot to learn a little closer to home. This according to David Freeman over at the Huffington Post in the article “Canada’s Vast ‘Sudbury Basin’ Was Created by Comet, Study Says“.
