In the news this morning, the Philae Spacecraft, about the size of a refrigerator, landed on a comet yesterday speeding through the atmosphere.  The comet, 67-P, is about 310 million miles from Earth and travels at speed of 85,000 miles per hour.  Scientists compare the achievement to hitting a golf ball from Earth and striking the moon. The trip to 67-P took ten years.
