Anyone else glimps that guy messing with a picture contrast then minimizing it when his friend pointed out they were on broadcast? What was that about I wonder..

The images need to be processed when they arrive, otherwise you'll be looking at a very dark screen. Once processed they are released officially through the Rosetta blog. No one wants to accidentally be responsible for a sneak peak preview hehe!

The question to ask, if you think it is anything more sinister, is would you have an official ESA camera in a room where secret things were happening?

new.livestream.com...

was anyone watching the live stream ?

They changed to a camera inside a small lab of people on laptops.
You could see the screen clearly of one of the main guys.
Initially it was an image of grey rocks/terrain, then he realized he was being filmed, flicked to Facebook for a second then flicked to the website live stream he was being seen in...

fitting, he was looping himself through cyberspace as the lander was falling in outta space.

Nah I didn't think it was anything sinister. Except editing out an alien base ofc!

Only joking.

I've just been under the impression they were going to show them the second they got them. I get really excited about space related stuff even though I don't understand much of the details. Btw thanks for the info about the video recordings I asked about a couple posts ago.

Hey no problem! The images come as standard FITS files and are very dark. If you do any type of astrophotography then you may know how different the raw data is to the finished product that's viewable.
There's also a lot of bureaucracy, most data does not 'belong' to ESA as such. If we take the OSIRIS imager for instance, it actually belongs to the Max Planck Institute in Germany, so they get the say in what images are released when. Because they have funded it and are responsible for it they get first dibs on making discoveries. If you had funded something and put over a decades work into it, you probably would not want someone else making 'your' discoveries before you do when it's only possible because of you anyway. So it might seem unfair in some ways, but that really depends on where you're standing.

These are all various factors that are the reality behind why we see people guarding their screens, unfortunately while we live in a world that works how it does it's just the way it is.

they've received images - there calling it a Selie image? scientific data?

Here's a short video that might help us visualizing what Philae is currently up to:

Well, mission control looks like a ghost town! Lots of empty seats in there, considering what is about to take place!

LOL, I was wondering about that, too ... I guess the control room will be overcrowded in case of success. At this point, though, they might have already searched for places to hide away if things go awry ...

Looks as if it will be a few hours yet, according to the BBC.


I guess it will start to pack out when the lander gets closer to its destination.

Not much for anyone to do right now at MC. The lander is committed on it's landing and will take a couple of more hours.

More than likely the controllers are all piled in a break room, gulping down coffee, tea, and whatever while they can as the final moments of the landing they won't be able to go anywhere, hehehehe.

Maybe he was looking at comet porn.

We won't really see much live, other than the probe's message of confirmation that it has landed. They aren't even too sure exactly when the lander will touch down, but they estimate it will be at approximately 16:02 UTC (that's 11:02 am U.S. EST), but there is an uncertainty as to when the lander will actually get to the surface (mostly due to the uncertainty of the actual landing site within the landing ellipse).

If all goes well, we will eventually see images from the surface (and maybe images from the descent?), but those will arrive from Rosetta later. The high-speed /wide bandwidth internet line hasn't been run between the comet and earth yet.
