Tomorrow at 16:02 GMT (+00:00) Philae, the space probe launched from Rosetta, is planned to land on the Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. For some this might not be a huge deal, but if I say this is absolutely HUMONGOUS, I'm not exaggerating.

Just as the Rosetta Stone provided the key to an ancient civilisation, so ESA's Rosetta spacecraft will unlock the mysteries of the oldest building blocks of our Solar System – the comets. As the worthy successor of Champollion and Young, Rosetta will allow scientists to look back 4600 million years to an epoch when no planets existed and only a vast swarm of asteroids and comets surrounded the Sun.
