In 2004, European Space Agency launched a space probe called Rosetta on a mission to land and perform a study of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. "Philae" was the name of its lander module. On 12 November 2014, “Philae” performed the first ever landing on a comet. Following the landing, which was a momentous event, the module got stuck in a ditch and all communications were cut off after a brief exchange of data. Months later there was a re-connection. “Philae” is still on the comet, studying data. This amazing human achievement inspired me to write a piece which marvels at the struggles, maneuvers and the loneliness of this little lander module.
