Too cool! I guess the harpoon is holding. I wonder how long the transmissions 
to earth and return, take? 
About half an hour to get a message there. But it's not all good news, they 
think it's on its side in a crater and if they can't get the solar panels to 
work the batteries will run out in 60 hours. 
According to their twitter feed they're trying to decide whether it's worth the 
risk of getting it to jump about a bit so they can maybe get it upright and 
then fire the harpoons again to lock it in place. But they can't decide whether 
to do the most important sciencey bit first in case it flies off into space!
This means drilling into the surface to look at what the dust cloud of early 
solar system was made from, this bit of rock has been hanging around for 3.5 
billion years with all these secrets, I hope they can get something good out of 
it.

This is what a comet looks like when you are sitting on it:
