Name That Landing Site!

The ESA is asking the public to name the landing site on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko where the Philae robot probe will try to land on 12 November.

Any name (except individual’s names) can be entered. The rules call for a maximum 200-word justification to be submitted in support of a proposal. (I’m voting for Osiris).  Entries have to be received before Thursday GMT next week.

The judging panel will announce the winner on 3 November.  Full details can be found here.
