I dunno if anyone is watching the ongoing Rosetta mission, but it is in the most awesome phase right about now.

    Didn't get to watch it on the early broadcast but caught the re-broadcast later on.  Most impressive.  Actually I've been enjoying the whole gamut of "Space Week" programming.    :cool

    Yep, been keeping a close eye on it. Quite an achievment.

    SJW is not a synonym of "leftists" or "liberals". Left-wing and right-wing positions are based on economics. SJWs are left-authoritarians which means that they are not liberals. Don't paint all leftists or liberals with the same (misguided) brush.

    Yeah apparently it did. In the briefing yesterday they joked it was particularly historic because they had landed on the comet twice in one day. :D
