67P - taken from the Rosetta craftAbove is the first color photo taken of 67P from the Rosetta space craft. Even in color 67P looks black and white! — BBC News

Philae had Cometary Acoustic Surface Sounding Experiment sensors recording onboard the lander when it bounced onto the surface of 67P. Want to hear what a comet sounds like? — CNET

Recent findings from the VIRTIS instrument (Visible and Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer) on Rosetta were published. They found that 67P is one of the darkest objects in our Solar System. That we know about at least! — ESA Blog

While no one really knows where Philae is resting, ESA believes that by May it could start receiving enough solar energy to wake up. You know, before it is fried by radiation. — ESA Blog
