Illustration for article titled How Philaes Comet Compares To An Imperial Star Destroyer

ESA's Philae lander made history this morning when it landed on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Here's how big 67P/C-G is, relative to a well-known spacecraft, courtesy of the Washington Post.


This is not the first size comparison we've seen for 67P. In the leadup to this morning's touchdown, we've seen it depicted beside (or on top of) Los Angeles, Mt. Fuji, and even a Borg Cube. Perhaps somebody should make room for 67P on this starship comparison chart.
