Yeah, I interpreted that the opposite way. Lets find some heavy metal in space!

They found a face on the comet, gotta have some pareidolia on every space mission:

That was actually Rosetta arriving at the comet and starting its orbit.
The probe landing won't be until November.

That face? Obviously it's another victim of a government coverup where somebody found some dastardly plans by Obama's daughter so she turned him into a giant rock and sent him into space.

I got my eye on you, Obama family >: (

Just one? I see others. At the opposite end there's one with a very pointy nose, for example. There's one right below the face they found too. There's one looking left on the section dangling by itself at the bottom. There's one facing us on the left side of the same section where they found the one face (that one even has hair).

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
