Here's a possible explanation for why the lander failed to land, that seems more credible to me than what is said here. It does look like 67P is not ice, it is rock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-a_jlM50PU
Results? Ehhh, Dead battery right after landing?. The lander failed miserably?. Basically nothing worked as it should have? Sad but true.
more than enough fuel to make a trip to other solar systems grab it before it comes alve and keep it sleeping until the new trip
Matt Taylor comes over as a little kid who can't believe he's a rocket scientist. Brilliant!
I cant believe he actually said "we have seen this ROCKY like but NO rock stuff which is ahhhh perhaps higher strength material"? Are you friggin kidding me, you think its maybe hubba bubba bubble gum posing as rock like material? Can't wait for the "dr fred whipple" morons to die off, worst postulation of the 20th century by far. Might as well create a square basketball for the NBA as it would be as glaringly out of place as dirty snowballs are to comets.
