    These guys are already looking incredibly tense…

    How long will we have to wait for news? Best guess is another 20 minutes, apparently.

    Think they need it in the control room at ESA. Their body language doesn’t inspire me with confidence at the moment!

    Wow, they did it, they really did it…emotional!

    Congratulations to ESA. All hail cute little Philae! Magnificent achievement in making a first for human kind. Worth the wait and tension. Now for all the important exciting science to come from it.
