Rosetta’s last kiss.

Reuters waxes poetic with their description of ESA’s Rosetta space probe giving comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko one “final kiss” before crash landing near the silent Philae lander:

The European spacecraft Rosetta will crash-land on the surface of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and end its 12-year space odyssey on Sept. 30, France’s National Centre for Space Studies (CNES) said on Thursday.

“What better end to Rosetta than to give a final kiss to her comet?” said Jean-Yves Le Gall, president of the CNES.
