Rosetta Philae lands on comet

Rosetta`s Philae lander has finally landed on its target, P67/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a ten year journey. After a tense wait, the signal that they had been hopping for finally came through much to everyone joy. Now it is hoped some of the questions the mission set out with can be answered. *Edit* Philae landed in a shaded area of the comet, this meant its onboard battery could receive the sunlight it needed to replenish its batteries. Scientists carried out as many experiments they could do before the batteries finally went dead. Now comes the analysing part.
