An amazing accomplishment to say the least. Hope they learn some neat stuff before the batteries die.

It's a testament to the people who work so hard and so long, and to then have only the shortest of windows to do their research, and then the probe is no more.

Almost reminds me of the beautiful and intricate sand mandala's that Buddhist monks make that are then blown away by the wind.

Concur. I hope some good data is returned. Sad, that the landing wasn't 100%, but still something great!!!

Reports are that the batteries may be able to get recharged when the comet makes it's swing around the Sun and the location where the machine is get some Sun on the solar panels.

The lander got it's batteries charged enough to call home. Hopefully, they will stay charged for a while and get some real data.
