What a shame that the landing of Philae was not without its problems.

Never the less, we have shown that our species is capable of some pretty impressive marksmanship and that despite Murphy's law, we seem to have achieved the goal of the mission.

Hat's off to the ESA!

It is remarkable achievement considering the distance! They had got it landed but keeping it there is apparently a problem. Equipment, skill and a hell of a lot of luck!

I have to say that some absolutely stunning images have been returned by the orbiter:
