Comet Photobombs Philae Lander’s Selfie From Rosetta Mission

In space, no one can hear you sneak up behind their selfie.


Back off, comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko! Philae is an amazing piece of technology and it was trying to take a picture of itself! Stop photobombing him. You’re just a giant hunk of rock falling through space! OK, fine. You’re a giant, beautiful, scientifically relevant… you know what? All is forgiven. This picture is amazing.

ESA scientists are currently still deciding on a safe spot on the comet, and then Philae will be able to make its historic landing on its surface. The location is expected to be announced next week.
