I just remembered the XKCD guy did already cover Philae’s landing on the comet and dedicated a full week’s worth of comic strips to that occasion. No, it was even more, much more. All in all he was so excited about this happening he draw 146 strips about Rosetta, Philae and the comet 67P. And I covered it in my glorious old Google bloggsy:
Ok, farewell you three, you were good, aspiring- if a little bit expensive – entertainment. Let’s see what the next galaxy will think of 67P when they find two dead space robots crashed on its surface.
I bet they always thought they were alone in the universe … and are now like “Uh oh!”
And then we are the aliens!
