They didn't really show a live feed from the lander... Kept on waiting to see it...

By the way, why do they keep calling it a comet? I mean, it's certainly much bigger then a comet, and it has no tail. It's sort of like an asteroid, but more like a planetoid. Some of the surfaces look really smooth, I think I identified some cliffs and a strange object.

The heck!
