Simulation of Philae’s bouncy landing

I sure wish I had this tool (Apparently it’s SpaceTraveller from Binary Systems) to use to predict exactly where I think Philae’s final resting spot is.

Note, though, that their guess has to be wrong — they have Philae right on the end of the “head” of the comet, which would certainly get much more than the 1.5 hours of sunlight Philae actually gets.

I still stand by my guess.
