Have scientists ever successfully recovered pieces of a moving comet?

    Not yet.  In 2005 the Deep Impact spacecraft deliberately collided with a comet in order to take photographs of its surface, but specimens were never returned to earth.  The Rosetta spacecraft is scheduled to land on the comet 67P churymev in 2014, which will be the first ever landing by a spacecraft on a moving comet.
