Groundbreaking moment in space exploration

A groundbreaking moment in space exploration.
The European space agency's "Rosetta" Spacecraft woke up and called home Monday before setting off on the final leg of its journey.
For nearly 10 years, the un-manned probe has been chasing a comet through space - hoping to one day land on its surface.
It has been hibernating for two years to recharge its batteries.
Now that its awake, it will scout the comet for a place to land.
Then "Rosetta" will analyze samples as it travels with the comet on a trip around the sun - beaming its results back to earth.
