Philae lands!!!! but signs of trouble were not over for ESA ground control as only 3 of the harpoons managed to get a perfect lock and so it had a rough landing .The awkward position has caused problems for Philae as the sun only appears for 3 hours every 24 hours which means our little explorer will have to dig using auxillary power .
Now that I’m safely on the ground, here is what my new home #67P looks like from where I am. #CometLanding pic.twitter.com/gFmt8Ldvpa

Philae has managed to record "Sounds of a comet" which are said to be sounds created by Oscillations around the rocks magnetic field , the sound is said to be 40-50 millihertz , the sound you hear in this soundcloud track (which sounds like some Alien Dubstep btw) is said to be amplified 100k times in order to be audible for humans .
