Philae lander found


“Rosetta’s lander Philae has been identified in OSIRIS narrow-angle camera images taken on 2 September 2016 from a distance of 2.7 km. The image scale is about 5 cm/pixel.

Philae’s 1 m-wide body and two of its three legs can be seen extended from the body. The images also provide proof of Philae’s orientation.

A Rosetta Navigation Camera image taken on 16 April 2015 is shown at top right for context, with the approximate location of Philae on the small lobe of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko marked.”

Kudos to the person who spotted tiny Philae in such huge pictures🙂

Video of the Week

“Using a GoPro Hero4 Session, the clip puts you in the driver’s seat of a Hot Wheels car as it hurtles down 8 expertly crafted pieces of track connected by ‘teleporting tunnels.’

The video was created by YouTube channel 5MadMovieMakers, and besides the transition from tunnel to tunnel, it’s not helped along at all by video editing. ‘Each section worked on its own from tunnel to tunnel,’ they explain in the video’s description. ‘The cart is powered entirely by gravity at all times.'”

Olivia Newton John – The Promise (The Dolphin Song)

See them play in the moonlight
Watch them dance in the sun
They’re the children of freedom – everyone
As they care for each other
With no question or cause
They deserve to be treasured as a source of love

In their minds there are answers
And in time we will know
What the truth is about all we don’t know
They have no room for hatred
Though they’ve suffered much pain
From the race we call human – who are afraid of love

If I can only help to right a wrong
With my dolphin song
Then I’ll have done what I set out to do
If I can only make one man aware
One person care
Then I’ll have done what I promised you

Let us hope it’s not too late
And that we can amend
All the pain we have suffered on a friend
We were born with our freedom
Oh we were born with the truth
Then why do we abuse it
We could choose – to love, to love
