    After reading the article, I would say it is still a stretch to say any organics are present. We will have to wait and hope for the lander to fire up again to find out for sure. Thanks for the heads up Jim.

    Well there's more to come from Rosetta and maybe Philae, the next 12 months will be a journey through the unknown and a new chapter written in the history of space exploration, clear skies.
