Scientists working on data collected the Philae probe have said that during a drill for a soil sample the Philae probe was able to "sniff" organic molecules.
"We currently have no information on the quantity and weight of the soil sample," Fred Goesmann from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research told the DLR German Aerospace Center.
Thsee incredible images show the moment the probe dropped from its satellite and first landed on Comet 67P five days ago.
Scientists racing against time to keep the Philae comet lander operating are debating whether to try 'hopping' the probe to a new location.
After the first man-made craft landed on a moving comet we look at the pictures sent back from the daring descent to the historic landing.
