So these are our first ever images of a comet's surface?

The historic Philae comet probe hit its target, but then unexpectedly bounced twice, settling in the shadow of a cliff that could hinder its research, new images sent back Thursday showed.

Philae is designed to run a suite of scientific experiments for an initial 2 1/2 days on primary battery power, after which it is expected to receive power from solar panels that could keep it functioning for an additional three months.

But because of the awkward touchdown, the lander is now getting only 1 1/2 hours of sunlight a day instead of the planned seven hours—a scenario that could seriously curtail the probe’s ability to operate.

The probe touched the surface once, then sailed to a height of one kilometer (3,300 feet) and stayed aloft for nearly two hours before the comet’s weak gravity pulled it back to the surface—about a kilometer from its initial touchdown spot. It then bounced again and stayed aloft for a further seven minutes before coming to rest on the surface.

The lander “hit less than 100 meters from the predicted point and did a huge jump,” said Stephan Ulamec, the European Space Agency scientist in charge of the Philae lander. “It is possibly now in the rim of a crater.”

The cliff wall appears to be about one meter (3 feet) away from the lander, blocking light for most of the day.

Philae Detected Organic Molecules On Comet
Dr Fred Goessmann, principal investigator on the Cosac instrument, which made the organics detection, confirmed the find to BBC News. But he added that the team was still trying to interpret the results.

It has not been disclosed which molecules have been found, or how complex they are.

But the results are likely to provide insights into the possible role of comets in contributing some of the chemical building blocks to the primordial mix from which life evolved on the early Earth.

While that is cool, I don't think this is anything new. Comets have been thought or known to have organic compounds on them for some time now.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we can partially thank that fact for our existence.

Skyler White disproves all science and evolution:



the scary part is that these people aren't just few and far between. They're everywhere.

I clicked on it because it said "Megan Fox". I was immediately disappointed.

Just a nutjob that looks like Skyler White walking through a museum saying over and over again "how do they know that? they weren't there... look how they write this stuff, like they KNOW it happened."

I'm guessing she's faith based? It really bothers me sometimes when someone dismisses science without even a thought but wants someone to accept Christ without any thought either.
