Using LEGO? to simulate ESA’s touchdown on a comet
Comets are primeval leftovers from the origins of the Solar System. To fully understand these ancient objects and perhaps the origins of life on Earth, ESA’s Rosetta mission will rendezvous with comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko in 2014. In November of that year, Rosetta’s Philae lander will touchdown on the comet and thoroughly investigate its composition.

c…ca…can i have all those bricks now??
Awesome! You really should explain more missions like this!
So if it arrived in May 2014, where is are the images etc of the comet? I'd have thought you would be posting them here.
Good luck to sort all the bricks by color now!?
Comets are building blocks of the solar system? Can someone please elaborate on that?
1:26 I dare someone to dance on that.
Hm too bad the anchoring didn't work 🙁 🙁 :(. But I am excited about the mission nonetheless.
Dear Santa Claus…
