As you may have heard, the ESA spaceship Philae separated from the orbiter Rosetta on Wednesday, and landed on the surface of the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
I don't have anything to add to that, I just think that's amazing. Even more amazingly, it's having a conversation with us:
In a delightful case of art imitating life, XKCD's planned series of cartoons covering the landing very much resembled the real Twitter conversation the two spaceships had with each other. (Yes, I know, those Tweets are just entered by some PR person at the ESA. Let's have a little whimsy about this.)
Now landed on the comet, Philae will conduct a series of experiments that will tell us more about comets, and perhaps even about life itself. It makes this week's USF-SMU game seem almost insignificant, doesn't it?

As always, you can use the comments to talk about this week's games. Good luck..
