Landing on a comet...


The comet has a special place in history of earthlings as the bringer of omens good and bad.


So what better symbol of a renewed 'Age of Aquarius,' itself a play on words signifying a new progressive zeitgeist, than landing on one for real?


Made of ice and rock, comets have an abundant supply of resources, too, as this one from Ron Miller suggests.


Cometary landings define astronautics- they make the term kinetic! The idea of landing here defines exciting.


But has anyone ever thought about going to an NEO as a tourist?
