Glad you had a good one, and will hopefully see you in Edinburgh :)

I was assuming as much, it wasn't as if it was an exact slowed down copy... still, did make one do a brief double-take :D

Now, if it had sounded like some of Jem's really expensive chords...  ;D

Just started listening this new agey concentration & focus thing, to get my head wrapped around some complex gubbins. I know; don't judge me.

I did not, however, expect to have Mr Mitchell enter the room at a glacial pace and creep up on me. Is that "Humans Being" I'm hearing in the opening minute or two of this?


Does rather sound like the same chord progression doesn't it?

Of course :D

"Premier League footballers and rock musicians are also among the buyers"

Which one is Jem again?

Premier League Musician? (around these parts anyway!) ;)

ow... :(

I guess buying everyone at the wedding a ticket each wouldn't work then?

Excellent as always Mike...

Been quite a few years now since last I saw Lacuna Coil, suspect they sound a bit different now too :)

Do not make this if you are allergic to nuts.

Although if you are, you're probably on the wrong forum

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

A shame with Schiaparelli, but the TGO is in orbit, and I hope that somewhere in the masses of telemetry are answers, progress comes from failure after all, though you have to know why.

And if Prog Mag doesn't recognise that, it's to their embarrasment, not yours!

I'm sure they get it... judging by the letters pages, some of their readers... maybe less so ;)

Well, it's on it's way... watched as the news of separation came in... much staring at screens and muttering... then smiles and applause.

Next stop Mars... hopefully in a controlled fashion :)

(Of course, the orbiter is really the main piece of science here... and it has the tricky job of getting into orbit, but there will have been a bunch of clever people and less clever if quite powerful computers to figure all that out).

Good luck! Hopefully all the calculations agree with reality on the day :)

Greta pics as always Mike! Interesting to see Paul... a most excellent guitarist... but I suspect Mr Foster will do just fine too!

Pretty bloody amazing.

Found out from the search team at 23:30 last night and immediately got to work on coordinating the release materials. Had to chair a conference session this morning, but was itching to get away and work with my team: then some feverish work on the images you now see.

And they're brilliant: completely unambiguous detection of Philae. I certainly never expected it to be that obvious. Magic.

As for the final music, try "Snowman" on for size: works pretty well, lyrically.

Yeah, and the rest of the image is pretty damn awesome too... such detail... you can really get a feel for the pile of icy rubble it is.

Ending up in a ditch was a bit unlucky... maybe it was the alchohol vapours on the way down? ;)

And  good call on Snowman... I'll make to play as many versions as I can find that day in Rosetta's memory :)

Found (if only just in frame!) in images taken just 4 weeks before final descent (to the strains of Falling Down... at least in my head :D, though given the likely velocities Hypoventilate is probably closer to the mark ;))

25 days to go... what will TA find to do instead? (oh yes, Mars is it not? :))
