Built using LEGO Mindstorms, the Philae lander model can be controlled using a home computer. It can rotate and move the drill up and down to simulate the behaviour of the real lander. As part of ESA's Rosetta space mission, Philae will land on comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November 2014 to study its composition.
