Satellite Rosetta Fails To Deploy Anchor To Keep Possition On Comet

The sphere anchor that shoots from underneath the Rosetta satellite has failed to deploy, at the moment it seems as though the gravity of the meteor seems to be strong enough as the satellite did not bounce off the meteors surface. Today at 16.30 it was known the landing was of 4cm of dust making it a soft landing. Pictures and other data will be signalled in due course.
This test to land on a comet was the riskiest yet but it seemed to run a breeze and gives future explorations a boost and also comon knowledge of what comets bring from way outside the solar system.
Its 17.00pm and the first pics should arrive in one hour approx.
