Preparation to land on 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko

ESA has put out a simple video explaining the last couple of months of Rosetta:
Preparing to land


  1. How amazing and exciting this is!

  2. It is incredible. Everything has worked so well. However, I recently read that even if 67P had been a sphere the probability of a successful landing was 70-75% - ONLY. That is great in astronomy but not so good for Philae. And 67P has increased its activity. This will be a very rough ride for Rosetta to get into position and then a rough descent for Philae. Fingers crossed und Daumen drücken/
