ANSWERS TO "FILL IN THE PLANCK #6: Rosetta's Last Day"
Was it talent? Or was it just lucky?
To land a spacecraft on a flying rubber ducky?
Nah it takes engineering flair and brain to go
In an orbit that’ll make you want to vomit
That’s the price of getting close to a giant flying comet
We learned the comet wasn’t a sphere
Because two came together like a bagel with schmear
Gas and ice at the center that were ready to bust
So when a cliff wall would crumble it would spit out dust
And plus, while it was taking a gander
It also dropped down the Philae Lander
But Philae smacked - landed in a crack
Ran out of battery life and then faded to black
Now Rosetta’s gonna join Philae -- by crash landing
While sending back data to increase our understanding
We’ll be sure to miss ‘em
But the data gon teach us ‘bout the early solar system
What’s next? We’ll have to wait and see.
Much love to the Euro Space Agency
