Rosetta-and-Philae

On November 12th, the Rosetta spacecraft, designed and developed by the European Space Agency (ESA), along with special instruments from NASA, will make an ambitious attempt to land its 220 pound sidekick ‘Philae’ on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This will be the first time ever a spacecraft has landed on a comet. Slooh will broadcast a free, real-time view of the comet after Philae attempts its landing, informing the public of the results as they reach Earth – live on Slooh.com on November 12th starting at 11:00 PM PST / 2:00PM EST / 1900 UTC. Slooh will attempt to image the extremely dim and low comet exclusively from a member controlled observatory located at the Institute of Astrophysics, Canary Islands (IAC).
