For the first time in the history of space flights, Europeans plan to land on a comet which travels in the Universe at 135 000 km/hr.

The project of the European agency costs 770 million Euro. It is expected to be launched on February 26. The space probe is planned to land on the “Churyumov-Gerasimenko” comet.

The project is intended to aid researchers to gain more insight of formation of the Universe and existence of life on the earth, informs RIA “Novosti”.
