On Nov. 12, the European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft will release its Philae lander to make space history: the first soft-landing on a comet. If all goes well, Philae will make a seven-hour descent from Rosetta to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and land at 10:35 a.m. EST (1535 GMT), with confirmation expected by 11:03 a.m. EST.

The European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft is just a few hours away from making space history as it prepares to land a probe on comet. See how to watch the historic comet landing live online. Watch the Rosetta landing webcasts here.
