Why?  Because it's important. It's monumentally amazing. It's technologically profound, insanely precise. 

In a world where fear and control and greed rule far too many, this venture quietly stands as a shining reminder of our potential, knowledge for the sake of knowing, exploration for the sake of learning.

If that's STILL not enough reason - then just...do it, okay?

European Space Agency (ESA) Rosetta mission’s scheduled landing happens tomorrow - Wednesday, Nov. 12.  

For the first time in human history, we're going to land a piece of human technology on a comet  - 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. 

If you have not already seen an animation of what it took to get THIS FAR, I would recommend it. Consider, as you watch it, the amount of planning involved to have even gotten THIS far....

Interested? I should hope so.

Here's the scoop - note, all times are EST.  (So wherever you are in the world, adjust accordingly!)

NASA Television and the agency’s website will provide live coverage from 9-11:30 a.m. EST (6-8:30 a.m. PST).

NASA's live commentary will include excerpts of the ESA coverage and air from 9-10 a.m.

NASA will continue carrying ESA's commentary from 10-11:30 a.m.

ESA’s Philae (fee-LAY) lander is scheduled to touch down on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko at 10:35 a.m. 

A signal confirming landing is expected at approximately 11:02 a.m.

I dream about soundtracks, playthroughs and Intel pixies.

thanks for watching - do now also watching you !!!
and it's cool that's you think so or too much -
the most people do this not and that's the reason
for so much trouble and misunderstanding
around the world. and only people like you - they
think so much - can change this.
so keep up thinking !!!
even if it is not the easiest way...
cool - you read the same books and writers as I !
I think Terry Pratchett is the best one - he has the
darkest humor and sarcasm I ever read...

Sorry for being so late in responding! You're very welcome.  (And yes, I think Pratchett is awesome! I love how he repaints reality and modern issues into the Discworld. )  =)
