Wednesday, 12th November

Today, the first ever spacecraft to land on the surface of a speeding comet, landed on a speeding comet.

This spacecraft, Rosetta, has traveled a mind-blowing six billion kilometres.

It took ten years for Rosetta to reach the comet (not to mention ten years to build her), and then send a tiny lander craft, called Philae, down to the comet.

Somehow, we received images of this!

The letters were cut from an advert in Time Out.
