This picture from Rosetta’s Osiris instrument shows the Philae lander on its way to the comet. According to the BBC, the European spacecraft is on course for the first, historic landing on a comet. Scientists have now released the first pictures from the lander after separating from its “mothership”, Rosetta.

The mission will shine a light on some mysteries surrounding these icy relics from the formation of our Solar System. Confirmation of touchdown is expected at Earth sometime around 16:00 GMT.
