Philae descent

  1. Amazing. Fingers crossed. A touchdown should have just happened, around now, but we won’t know for sure for another three hours. Could a radio signal be pushed to cross 510m. km faster than 27 minutes? Could we ever hope to observe something happening that far away in anything closer to real time? Frenchman Philippe Gaudon heads the project. First blobby images after separation coming now. So orbiter and lander still viable.
