Re: 1446: "???"

No change other than the text reading "50" instead of "55".

Re: 1446: "???"

Time until lander separation: 1 hour. no more updates til then? Edit: he'll probably change the time to 55 mins, 50 mins... You are correct: https://sslimgs.xkcd.com/comics/landing/r_02-40-00_XqySBX8Pjp.png https://sslimgs.xkcd.com/comics/landing/r_02-40-00_XqySBX8Pjp.png

Re: 1446: "???"

And in a surprise twist (and deviation between comic and reality), the "separation" in the comic refers to the separation of the two chunks of the comet!

Alt-text is still reading "..."

Re: 1446: "???"

Maybe that means we'll be seeing the comet soon? Good call! How hard would it be to brute force the hash? Hard enough that we (most likely) wouldn't get it finished by the time this thing reaches its endpoint. ETA: Comet is in full view! https://sslimgs.xkcd.com/comics/landing/r_01-55-00_KGFuQYeX1i...

Is someone saving all of the individual hashes? We don't need to post every image here (and probably shouldn't, for the server's sake), but it might be good to have them for posterity.
