When you REALLY want to get away from it all...
A page on one of the most popular internet tourism and hotel
sites, facetiously advertising the "67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Comet Hotel", has drawn a fine.
The fake ad on the website announced that there is a hotel on
the comet, ready for holiday-goers. Contained in the ad is a
'comment' concerning a vacation at the 'Philae Hotel' on the
comet. The supposed vacationer, Mr. Philae Lander, related
in his 'comment' that the long journey to the site takes 10 years
and that the Rosetta transporter subjected him to a "chaotic
landing" at the hotel. In addition, Mr. Lander shared that the
vacation spot is sunless and quite cold, there is no night-life -
or any other life, for that matter.
The 'comment' ends with Mr. Lander relating that "I am
waiting anxiously for my return trip." Lander gave the hotel
just 1 star, on a 5-star rating scale.
Unamused, the European Space Agency (ESA) filed suit for
damages against the ad's author, who has not yet been identified.
The resulting fine amounts to 100 Euros.
