62 Kilometers above Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Spacecraft Rosetta continues to approach, circle, and map Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Crossing the inner Solar System for ten years to reach the vicinity of the comet last month, the robotic spacecraft continues to image the unusual double-lobed comet nucleus. The reconstructed-color image featured, taken about 10 days ago, indicates how dark this comet nucleus is. On the average, the comet’s surface reflects only about four percent of impinging visible light, making it as dark as coal. Comet67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko spans about four kilometers in length and has a surface gravity so low that an astronaut could jump off of it. In about two months, Rosetta is scheduled to release the first probe ever to attempt a controlled landing on a comet’s nucleus.
at least you can still get some laughs out of the ending to this movie (though actually it’s not as terrible as I remembered thinking it was)
Oy Bruderl, Lekhaim – אױ ברודערל, לחיים
Byidish Ze Nishmma Yoteyr Tov – Sounds better in Yiddish
Rediscovered this album today, so so much fun. Must have looked a complete loon grinning and bouncing and mouthing along at work but whatever. Unfortunately my Hebrew isn’t good enough(!) to work out who the singer is from the commentary.
