That's a really inexpensive comet.

Thanks for announcing the landing zones, we were all trying to decide where we each should land.
Good luck, we're all counting on you.

If I weren't limited by being on mobile, there would be a pic of a kerbal on an asteroid right here

I note that you don't say that it had safely reached the asteroid.

We're sailors on a comet
We hardly ever vomit
Very soon, we'll shoot our harpoon
Then the lander will be on it.

I have no idea where that came from.

It was such a pretty explosion

Will Morgan Freeman hold a press conference to announce the mission to blow up this comet? We ARE going to nuke it, aren't we?

That's pretty cheap for parking by European standards. It's a hell of a walk back though.

Was it named before the decimal conversion?

Wow, that article was light on details. They neither linked the announcement nor the landing sites. Talk about lazy.

"Oh, give me a trip
on a big rocket ship
'cause I'd love to be in outer space...

Where you're free as the birds
and can say naughty words
and nobody there slaps your face!"

So shouldn't Billy Bob Thornton be putting together a team led by John McClane and Daredevil?

In a week they'll announce the extra gravity of the lander and satellite have pulled the comet into a collision course with Earth.

That comet looks EXACTLY like a rubber duck... as long as you ignore the size, shape, color, and texture!

My current save point is during a rendezvous with an asteroid.  So much fail for me with this.  So far, zero successes.
