The Philae the lander of the European Space Agency (ESA) probe Rosetta has landed on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gera on November 12th, 201 becoming the first probe to land on a comet.

A look at the high resolution version of the above image shows a grainy surface that is consistent with being a loose arrogate of material held together mainly by gravity, while a portion does look melted from being melted by the sun. It seems to be a mixture of various materials making it most consistent with an exploded or shattered planet. However other possibilities can not be ruled out without an actual mineral analysis.
