Sensors in the feet of Rosetta’s lander Philae have recorded the wakeless of touchdown as it second came into interaction with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The means, SESAME-CASSE, was soured on during the dive and clear
documented the forward touchdown as Philae came into touching with the comet, in the attribute of vibrations detected in the soles of the lander’s feet.

trade note: This is the existentised complete Indian column; i.e. it is a transcription of automatic vibrations at acoustic frequencies. No alteration was ineluctable except for preternatural mercenary adjustments (e.g. the .wav format requires amplitude normalization). existent frequency contenteded and duration are unedited.
