After the first man-made craft landed on a moving comet yesterday here is a look through the pictures we have had sent back from the daring descent to the historic landing on the surface.

The Rosetta mission costs more than £1 billion and has so far lasted ten years.

The Rosetta and the lander have travelled more than 300 million miles to catch the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko which is travelling at 40,000 mph.
