recorded the profound of touchdown as it forward came into placement with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The means, SESAME-CASSE, was turned on during the jump and clear
documented the forward touchdown as Philae came into interaction with the comet, in the attribute of vibrations detected in the soles of the lander’s feet.

mercantile note: This is the existentised complete line; i.e. it is a transcription of automatonlike vibrations at acoustic frequencies. No alteration was unavoidable except for numerous mercantile adjustments (e.g. the .wav format requires amplitude normalization). effective frequency happy and duration are in-situ.
