Yeah, most of the comets geology seems to be the results of sublimation..

It's a very dramatic scenario playing out.
Some big, big decisions to be made without knowing the full picture.

CNES presser: "We have lots of data" ... "I won't reveal what the scientists have discovered, but it is extraordinary!" *big grin*

They just showed some CIVA images as well as the lander superimposed on a panorama created with them.

The first image is the screenshots of the CIVA images. The first two images are the same thing, but one's exposed longer or brightened.

They are going to move Rosetta to a better orbit for Philae communications, one burn has already been made.

Philae tracking images with Rosetta.
One shows a long-distance shot of the lander next to the comet.
The other is the highest-resolution image of the lander they acquired.

Edit: The images are on their site now.
