Historic Comet Landing Confirmed

ESA’s Rosetta mission has landed its Philae lander on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, marking the first time in history this has been accomplished.

After a dramatic landing which saw the lander bounce twice, the Philae lander has come to rest in a shady area of the comet.
