Philae lands on the comet!

 First image from Philae on the surface of the comet!

This is one of those "Where were you when...." moments!

Yesterday and today I taught three classes about the Rosetta project and how today would be the most important space achievement since man walked on the Moon. The kids loved finding out and watching the video clips of the mission. I was quite amazed though that most of the children had never heard of the mission and had no idea what was about to happen today.
We really need to to get the kids interested and educate them about what is happening technologically with the space missions and projects. I agree with Prof, Brian Cox!

This is a truly outstanding fete...well done to everyone involved in the project!
