History is being made today, both on social media and off. We have never made contact with a comet, until now. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is sending a lander to the surface of Comet #67P to receive scientific information.  “We don’t know exactly what awaits us there,” says lander Project Manager Stephan Ulamec from the DLR.

 

 

This is all groundbreaking science and fascinating information … and it’s being played out in real time on social media through Twitter. Both the Rosetta Mission Control and the actual Philae Lander have Twitter handles, and they are live Tweeting. Their interactions, as they separate and communicate, are very cute and creative. With a little clever conversation and personification, the average person can easily follow along during this momentous scientific event.
