The European Space Agency’s Robot has made a historic landing on the comet. Philae descended from its mother ship and soft landed on the comet. The landing on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko occurred at about 1605 GMT.
There were cheers and hugs when the news about the successful landing of the craft was announced at the control room in Darmstadt, Germany. The probe will try to solve the mystery about the icy relics which were formed along with the birth of the solar system. The journey to the comet started nearly a decade ago and the 6.4 billion kilometers journey ended today with the landing of the probe on the comet. Since the Lander sank almost 4 cm it suggests a soft surface.
Stephan Ulamec, the mission’s Lander chief, said: “Philae is talking to us… we are on the comet.”
