Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It might just be a two second clip of what sounds like some rustling paper or a dull thud, but the recording of the Philae lander’s touchdown on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P/C-G)...

Company Congratulates the European Space Agency, NASA and Their Partners on Their Continued Success as the Rosetta Spacecraft Reaches its Objective ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Nov.
A set of instruments on the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft has picked up a mysterious "song" from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The sounds are thought to be oscillations in the magnetic field around the comet.
Today’s historic comet-landing mission has come to a successful conclusion, as the ESA confirmed at 11:03am EST via its Twitter account that it had received a signal from Philae on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P/C-G).
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA Television and the agency's website will provide live coverage from 9-11:30 a.m. EST (6-8:30 a.m.
After sailing through space for more than 10 years, the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft is now less than a week shy of landing a robotic probe on a comet.
Generally speaking, space missions fall into one of three categories: difficult, more difficult, and ridiculously difficult.
This image of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, taken by Rosetta's Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System (OSIRIS) on Sept. 20, from a distance of 4.5 miles, shows jets of dust and gas streaming into space from the neck of the comet's nucleus.
An innovative short film with special effects worthy of a big-budget blockbuster isn’t the average way a space agency promotes an upcoming mission, but then again, ESA’s Rosetta mission is hardly your ordinary mission.
If recent chemical signatures detected from 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko are any indication, then it’s a good thing the forthcoming attempt to land a probe on the surface of the comet is an unmanned mission, because the astronauts might not be able to handle the odor.
