Rosetta mission lander detects organic molecules on surface of comet


Recommended Posts

This just absolutely amazes me..


The Philae lander has found organic molecules – which are essential for life – on the surface of the comet where it touched down last week.
The spacecraft managed to beam back evidence of the carbon and hydrogen–containing chemicals shortly before it entered hibernation mode to conserve falling power supplies.

In ten months it will be back online, it requires that time for the rotation of the comet will be in a position that the batteries of the probe will be functional and rechargeable so as the experiments can continue. I guess ten months is not a long time considering it required ten years to reach its destination.


btw...im a huge fan and much more regarding the Lunar X . :-)
