    Anyone else excited ? If you haven't heard of what's happening here's a video.



    They have other animated videos as well in this series. Must watch. Show them to your kids too.

    If you are the reading kind, then here's a link explaining why it's a big deal. And another one.
    It's the 'moon landing' of our times. :)

    Great presentation in layman's terms. We spoke about this in my computer science class this morning.

    When I was 13 or 14, an astronaut names Gus Grissom came to our school, and talked about the space program. This was before space shuttles and the US was shooting at landing a man on the moon at the time.

    We got to ask questions, and someone asked about landing on a comet.

    I remember that he kind of smiled and said, "The moon is not really moving, so landing on it we can do. But we will never land on a comet, they just travel too fast."

    I wish he had lived to see this.

    My in-laws live right near a school named in his honor, in Huntsville, AL, where a lot of events took place around the moon landing.

    I feel like the name "Rosetta" implies they are trying to communicate with someone(they literally could have picked any other name)
