I still can't believe how we actually managed to land Philae there in that crevasse. The comet looks so incredibly small when you compare it to the distance Philae had to travel to get there. I mean, I have a hard time landing on the Mun in Kerbal, so this seems near impossible.

    I have a hard time landing on the Mun in Kerbal,

Gilly kept kicking my ass. Sneeze and you are in orbit.

It took ten years to get there. TEN YEARS.
