Kenneth Chang, The New York Times:
The Philae has landed.
The European Space Agency’s ambitious attempt to place a spacecraft on the surface of a comet succeeded when a signal arrived at the mission control center at Darmstadt, Germany, just after 5 p.m . local time (11 a.m. Eastern time).
What a historic achievement for Science.
