The Philae lander has separated from the Rosetta orbiter, and is now on its way to becoming the first spacecraft to touch Comet 67P. At about 11 a.m. EST, Philae is scheduled to touch down on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. It will be the first time in history that a spacecraft has attempted a soft landing on a comet.
