[Update] The Philae lander has successfully detached from Rosetta and is on its way to make a landing around 11AM!

Rosetta has one chance to make history by landing Philae on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and the procedure is starting up in space right now. You can watch along with the ESA’s live stream overnight and into tomorrow when Philae will finally touch down on the comet’s surface.

We’ve also got a handy breakdown of how and when the spacecraft separation and landing will take place.

If you’re looking to catch up, you can get all the updates from the ESA twitter feed:
