article's image

The European Space Agency has released a sequence of 19 images that track the Philae lander's historic seven-hour journey as it descended 14 miles to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The images were captured by Rosetta’s OSIRIS camera and suggest the probe landed with two legs on the ground and another pointing into space. The exact location of Philae remains unknown.
