Philae landing expected any moment

Excited about a first for us all – a robot landing on a moving comet to study its properties intimately. Amazing accomplishment so far – rendezvous with the comet, detection of organic matter (methane, ethanol, etc.), and successful launch of the lander…a signal from touchdown is expected within the next hour!
