Hellooooooooo Sweeties,

There is sooooo much maths in the news, triumphs and tragedies,  I don’t know where to begin.

First of all a tiny little spacecraft not much bigger than a washing machine has landed after a 10 year voyage on a comet 520 million km away from earth. Wow! Mathpig has some interesting space maths for you:
