On November 11, billions of miles from Earth, a spacecraft orbiter and lander will do what no other has dared to attempt: land on the volatile surface of a comet as it flies around the sun at 41,000 mph. If successful, it could help peer into our past and unlock secrets from our very origins. The stakes couldn't be higher.

Excellent documentary, but I agree - they should have waited for the outcome before finishing the film. However, it is awesome and mind boggling to see what a comet truly is.

Interesting documentary, though perhaps finished before it should have been finished. The efforts by the European Space Agency to send a probe to a comet are explored in this documentary on the Rosetta mission. There is plenty of commentary from the experts, footage of the processes and challenges involved in landing on the surface of one of these, and CGI variations on the look of a comet. Still, things end before the story really ends.
