This comet landing may be a REAL short blip due to technical error. If this comet is any thing like Siding Spring (you know the one that destroyed the Mars base) expect Rosetta to be swallowed up for alien research or turned into space dust. Sorry, didn't mean to bruise any egos here.
lol wtf are you talking about
Some guy claims that as he saw a telescopic view of Mars and he saw a big explosion. However, if there was an explosion on Mars large enough to be seen from Earth, then it would have been a global event on Mars -- but our rovers there had not witnessed any such global event, and everything seems fine.
Here's a video of what the guy claims he saw, but by looking at the speed of the "explosion", I think he just caught a lens flare or telescope reflection of some sort. An explosion would not move that fast.

thats what they just said, its not anchored as well as they wanted it to be, it could mean Philea can fly off the comet...

Oh an hour or something from now, and they'll have launched the anchors again. That'so damn exciting! I hope it'll work.
And have to admit I want to see the surface pics as well....
