It was an exciting day in space history yesterday as a spacecraft landed on a comet!  This was a mission ten years in the making that required some amazing technology and a few trips around the Earth and Mars.  Check out this exciting video!

At 300 million miles away, this is a very impressive feat.  Despite a harrowing landing, Philae did get locked on the surface.  It will be doing some scientific testing, and we’ll post more information as it becomes available.  Head over to the Reuters website for more information.
