It's one of the most historic thuds heard in recent years. At only two seconds long, it offers a lot more data for scientists to unpack than you might think.
The hunt for Rosetta's lost lander Philae is gaining steam as scientists pore over images from above the comet that may help reveal its final location.
Its battery dead, the European lander is lost in a crater somewhere on a huge comet. But the orbiter that brought it there still has plenty of science left to do.

The landing marks a historic triumph for the European Space Agency -- and for space exploration as a whole.
After the first successful touchdown on a comet, a NASA director couldn't contain his excitement, declaring the Rosetta mission a key step toward "taking" the entire solar system.
