Follow the Rosetta landing live today

You can follow the live deployment of Philae on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko today here or at this link. This is one of the highlights of the mission when the Rosetta lander will be deployed to land on the surface of the comet. Rosetta launched in 2004 and arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 6 August 2014. It is the first mission in history to rendezvous with a comet and escort it as it orbits the Sun.

Follow closely what is taking place in the Rosetta blog and take a look at some of the wonderful video material from ESA like this video, made available for schools: http://www.esa.int/spaceinvideos/Videos/2014/11/Once_upon_a_time_prepari...
