Philae lands safely!

Quite an achievement to be able to land on a rough active dumbell shaped Churyumov–Gerasimenko comet with an escape velocity of 1m/s and an acceleration due to gravity of 10−3 m/s2!!

Many congratulations to European Space Agency and Rosetta team!

ESA has the actual 3D model file at
