On 12 November 2014, at approximately 5:03pm Singapore time, mankind will once again attempt to stomp his foot print on his voyage of the infinite cosmos.

While we have landed on the Moon and Mars, the same could not be said for a comet.

Now, after more than 10 years in the making, the Rosetta spacecraft will attempt to plant a lander called Philae on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. (It's a long name, I know!)

National Geographic Channel is back once again to provide front-row seats to the masses.

From hundreds of millions of kilometres away from Earth where the attempt will be made, we will be able to witness this historic moment LIVE on and on the National Geographic Channel's Facebook page!

Set your time for reminder alert for 3pm Singapore time (7am GMT) in which the feed will begin.

At 5:03pm Singapore time (9:03am GMT), the initial separation of Philae from Rosetta is expected to be confirmed on-ground at the European Space Agency.

A nerve wreaking 7 hour wait will then ensue - when only at 12:03am Singapore time (16:02 GMT) will we confirm if Phailae has landing on Comet 67P.

During that time, be sure to tune to Comet Catch: The Rosetta Landing, a National Geographic Channel's specialafter spending the year documenting the final stages of incredible scientific story.

Comet Catcher: The Rosetta Landing will air on 7pm on the same day, 12 November on the National Geographic Channel (StarHub Channel 411 and SingTel mio TV Channel 201).


Make your Wednesday a memorable one, for the few who represents us are making sure it is a day worthy of it.
