12 November 2014: The European Space Agency’s space probe, Philae, lands on Comet 67P today after a 10-year journey!

If successful, this will be the first time a space probe has ever landed on a comet. If all goes as planned, Philae will ride the comet as it goes around the Sun and send scientific data back to Earth.
