Landing on a Comet, 317 Million Miles From the Earth

 

 

10 years ago on March 2nd 2004, European Space Agency ESA designed & launched the space craft called Philae..

 

Philae's design & missions sole purpose was to travel  to the far edge of the space and meet with Comet Churyumov Gerasimenko , the shuttle has a small lander that will make contact with the asteroid in a soft landing manner , Not like the impact mission carried out like previous space mission

 

After being launched nearly 10 years ago, the ESA's Rosetta mission is about to reach a major milestone

 

Philae is a 100 kg (220 lb) robotic probe that will set down on the surface with landing gear and it will basically "harpoon itself to the surface" when it lands it will send back images first hand then it'll drill down into the comet (although this one is not directed by Micheal bay)

Comet Churyumov Gerasimenko

 

 

Early Wednesday morning the Rosetta spacecraft’s Philae lander will attempt to land on Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko

 

 

NASA Television and the agency’s website will provide live coverage from 9-11:30 a.m. EST (6-8:30 a.m. PST) of the European Space Agency (ESA) Rosetta mission’s scheduled landing of a probe on a comet on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

NASA's live commentary will include excerpts of the ESA coverage and air from 9-10 a.m. NASA will continue carrying ESA's commentary from 10-11:30 a.m. ESA’s Philae (fee-LAY)

Philae is scheduled to detach from Rosetta on 12 November 2014 at 08:35 UTC, with a landing seven hours later

After landing, Philae will obtain the first images ever taken from a comet's surface. It also will drill into the surface to study the composition and witness close up how a comet changes as its exposure to the sun varies. Philae can remain active on the surface for approximately two-and-a-half days. Its “mothership” is the Rosetta spacecraft that will remain in orbit around the comet through 2015. The orbiter will continue detailed studies of the comet as it approaches the sun and then moves away. NASA has three of the 16 instruments aboard the orbiter.

The ESA expects the landing to take place at around 11:02AM ET tomorrow

 

Technically it's not Live since there is the delay about 40 minutes between signal since it's so fuc*ing distant from earth!

Watching it right now


There have been many wars that have rocked the face of Earth, Many have heard of WWI, WWII, The Cold War, The Vietnam War and the Iraq War. But there has been a war that only a handful of humans know.....AMD vs Intel. It all started in 1985 when Intel released the first 32bit processor, the Intel 386. This war has been raging on for decades and Intel and AMD are still at each others throats. Fanboys have been ruthlessly killed, motherboards have been short circuited and most gruesome of all... CPU pins have been bent. Stop this war before it is too late. #STOPTHISWAR

Does anyone know when it lands EST time?

He wrote the landing time in Eastern time...

 

I just wanted to save people the inconvinience of looking up when that is in their own timezone.
