Sorry, but your title sent my mind a wandering.

RE: She blinded me with comets.
I was going to make an Attack of the Triffids reference but I don't care about that now. That's fucking cool.

Wish I'd heard about this before now. I always feel as though I'm a beat off on science news.

Edit: Stuck my head in on XKCD before bed. They're doing a live landing report thing right here.

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

Release has been confirmed. Now we wait.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

This is awesome. Can we track through NASH or something?

Post-separation photos are up. The lander's legs have opened up correctly during descent.

RE: She blinded me with comets.
Somewhat safe landing is confirmed. The lander did not fire the harpoons designed to latch it to the come's surface. It likely bounced at least once and may not be oriented correctly. It is transmitting back to Rosetta and is expected to relay a panorama of where it is on the surface, but no pictures have been released as yet.
