Preparing for #CometLanding
After a ten-year journey, Rosetta and Philae had finally reached their destination, Comet 67P/Churyumov?Gerasimenko. Rosetta spent many weeks studying the comet, sending lots of information back to Earth. But where was Philae going to land? Eventually the scientists on Earth found the best place on the comet for Philae to land. Soon it was time to make the final preparations for Philae’s great adventure. Both spacecraft couldn’t wait any longer. The whole world would be watching as Rosetta and Philae prepared for their biggest challenge yet…

Are you sure Philae can survive on one cheese sandwich for 2 years? Of course he can. Cheese sandwiches are the best thing in the world.
