The Rosetta Mission Philae Lander Encounters Probems with Landing on Comet

       The Rosetta probe was launched in 2004 by the European Space Agency to chase and ultimately rendezvous with the Churyumov-Gerasimenko Comet also known as Comet 67P. It completed its mission last week and is in orbit around Comet 67P this week. Upon arriving at Comet 67P, the Rosetta probe launched the Philae Lander for a soft landing on the comet.
