In Mid-November, the European Space Agency's Rosetta orbiter will attempt to launch a lander, named Philae, to try to land on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko:  http://www.nasa.gov/jpl/rosetta/spot-for-rosettas-lander/index.html

Behold! the Rosetta Stone of the 21st century!

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

Psht. That is the worst comet, so derivative.  They should really try for 45P/Honda–Mrkos–Pajdušáková. Now that is a comet to be proud of.

Have you considered the possibility that your face is an ad hominem?

I like the A34 Comet and would not mind having one.
