With today’s historic news that the European Space Agency robot probe Philae
successfully landed on a comet after a 6.4 billion kilometre journey that lasted nearly a decade it got me thinking what shocking news NASA could possibly release to top the news of this monumental achievement.
Maybe they should finally tell us the big secret, that all the chimps we sent into space came back super intelligent.
“No, I don’t think we’ll be telling them that!”
Edit: According to the most recent reports, Philae has not in fact successfully landed on the comet as the probe has not been secured and all contaommunication with the device has been lost. As usual, I’ve been had.
