Especially the cleaner emptying the bins. That's the sort of detail that NASA always missed.
Brace for action, comet-watchers! Today's the day that the Rosetta craft successfully dropped the probing Philae lander on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The European Space Agency (ESA) said Rosetta will make its last pre-drop burn at 0630 GMT. At around 1605GMT the ESA confirmed they had "telemetry" as Philae …
Shame to hear that the thruster designed to press Philae down and prevent rebound is u/s, so we now have to hope that the harpoons do hit something soft enough to dig into and hold on. Stress levels in the operations centre are going to be through the roof by 16:00! Good luck to them all!
