Anybody Can Land On A Comet

10 years and 6.5 billion kilometers later (give or take a few inches)…

The spaceship Rosetta’s landing probe Philae will be landing on 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Tomorrow. We hope.

The comet is currently hurtling through space at 24,600 miles per hour and its nucleus is only 2.5 miles wide. Scientists compare the task to a fly trying to land on a speeding bullet.

PS: Why couldn’t they have scheduled this thing to land on 11.11 at 11 o’clock 11 in the morning?

Germans still kissing the President’s…

Talk about your Mardi Gras.

 

But they’re still sexually unpermissive during Carneval, OK?

 

“Just 13 percent of women and 12 percent of men said they cared less during carnival if their partner cheated. Interestingly, those aged 60 and over were twice as likely to forgive their partner were he or she to succumb to the urge.”
