Check Out The First Animated Image Of The Philae Probe Landing On A Comet
Check it out, folks. This is the first animated image showing the Philae probe landing on a comet on Nov. 12.
The animation combines two images that were taken by a camera on the Rosetta spacecraft, from which Philae was deployed.
The first image was taken at 1:30 GMT and the second image was snapped at 1:35 GMT. Philae landed around a minute and a half before the second image was taken.
The lander appears as that dark splotch in the lower-left of the photo, which is probably some dust that it kicked up as it touched down on the surface
