setting up to orbit

The European Space Agency has done it. They've driven their Rosetta probe (with Philae lander) to comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. An amazing journey to be sure. But now the hard work begins. They are setting up to orbit the curiously shaped comet and to choose a landing site for the little piggyback craft.

The images continue to amaze.
