According to the recent reports revealed, The European Space Agency has confirmed the time and place it will attempt to land the first spacecraft on a comet.
On Wednesday, the ESA said, it’s unmanned probe Rosetta will release the 100-kilogram (220-pound) lander at 0835 GMT (3:35 EST) on 12th November.
The purpose is to drop the Philae lander at a location named as ‘Site J’ on the 4 kms (2.5 mile) wide comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
ESA officials told that, the mission took 7 hours to complete as radio signals have to travel more than 400 million kilometers (250 million miles) back to Earth and the confirmation of a successful landing won’t arrive until about 1600 GMT (11:00 a.m. EST).
Moreover, the researchers are hopeful that this maneuver would assist them in order to learn more about the origins and evolutions of objects in the universe.
