Live Updates: Rosetta Spacecraft's Philae Lands on Comet

Rosetta's lander attempts to land on speeding comet.

When Rosetta phoned home to the European Space Agency’s mission control in Darmstadt, Germany today, it took 28 minutes for the signal to reach Earth, traveling 317,520,679 miles.

The spacecraft is scheduled to land at 8:30 a.m. ET, and by 11 a.m. ET, we will know if it hit its target and is functioning.

We'll have details from the control room, live updates and photos here, so follow along with us as the European Space Agency attempts to make history.
