Rosetta Probe Touches Down On Speeding Comet

The Rosetta mission has successfully landed a probe on a comet moving at 34,000mph in a historic first for space exploration.

Scientists cheered and punched the air in the European Space (ESA) control room when they received confirmation that the Philae lander was sending signals from the surface of the comet.

How exciting is that?
