How did the first landing on a cometary nucleus really work out? How was it planned and engineered? What science did it actually achieve? Hermann Boehnhardt, lead scientist for the Philae lander on Rosetta, will tell us the story of the lander and provide an overview of the science it did on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
