UFO At Comet 67P Churyumov Gerasimenko, Sept 2014

Earth-people: This is the first time a spacecraft 
has ever landed on the surface of a comet. 
You have nothing to fear
from us.


  1. This is totally cool. I have read the description of it over and over and I still don't get how they figured it out or got it to land correctly. Though I have to say, the pictures of the real comment look very CGI ish.

  2. Seriously - they said the probe is picking up strange sounds - it really is fascinating.

    What if the sound was coming from a Rave at the Mos Eisley Cantina?

  3. I love the Ann Barnhardt photo. Sometimes I wish I could join her on Cloud Cuckooland. Must be nice to rocket through life about three feet above reality.

    You always find the best pictures. I may have to see a psychiatrist after viewing the photo of the dashing young monsignor lighting the cigarette of the cardinal with the $500 shades. Paging Dr. Freud... I'll be sending you the bill.

    1. You are the only one to pick up on the AB photo.
