Daniel Fischer is an astronomy writer and amateur astronomer in Germany, interested in and covering all things space since his high-school days in 1982. He is especially fond of unusual or rare events in the sky that not only professional space scientists but also amateur astronomers and even the public at large can enjoy together, like eclipses, meteor storms and major comets.
Daniel tweets as Cosmos4u in English and with interstellarum in German, in which he also blogs - a lot - as Skyweek 2.0 and frequently contributes to the interstellarum Newsletter as well as the related print magazine and web TV show.
Beaming scientists all around, spectacular images on large TV screens, and the best - or at least most exciting - yet to come: such was the extraordinary scene at the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany, today as the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft reached its cometary destination.
