    Rosetta

    Why the hell isn't there a Rosetta/Philae thread going on?
    This is some of the biggest news that could happen when it comes to space & science.
    If you don't know what happend (TL;DR): Rosetta launched in 2004, took 10 years to get into an orbit equal to the comet's one, landed on it yesterday).

    Here is a .gif explaining it (it's really cool):


    What are your guys opinions on it?

    inb4 so much money wasted.

    Was browsing imgur, found the gif, decided to bookmark it, went to MPGH, made a thread about Rosetta, used that gif.
