Knock, knock. It's humanity.

If you follow space news at all, you're probably aware that humanity has a doohickey called the Rosetta probe orbiting a comet, specifically comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, or "67 Pikachu" for short (not really, I made that up). This was a pretty big deal, since people don't put space probes into orbit around a comet every day...or ever, since it was our first time. Even more groundbreaking, we shot an even smaller doohickey—the Philae lander—onto the comet's surface.
