space probe has already sent back stunning images of the comet it was sent to survey, but its operations could be seriously jeopardised.
History was made when the Philae

, the European spacecraft that made an historic descent to and landing on a comet, is resting at an angle in the shadow of a crater wall more than half-a-mile from its planned landing site, scientists believe.
European Space Agency (ESA) mission controllers clapped, cheered and hugged each other after receiving confirmation that the Philae
probe had landed yesterday.
Ulamec said thrusters that were meant to push the lander, called Philae
, onto the surface, and harpoons that would have anchored it to the comet failed to deploy properly.
The lander, named Philae
, will drift through space, tugged only slightly by the gravity of the comet, commonly called 67R Mission scientists will be holding their breath for what could be several anxiety-filled hours to see if Philae
lands where and how it's supposed to.

And data just released from the comet lander Philae
bring a firsthand account from the surface of a comet (Page 13).
