For a spacecraft that emerged from 211 days of unexpected hibernation on the surface of a comet hurtling toward the sun, the Philae lander appears to be healthy.
According to scientists at the European Space Agency, the Rosetta Mission is shifting back into an active data-gathering face to learn more about comet 67P. This is the first time a spacecraft has ever landed in a comet in deep space.
The lander sent signals on June 13 and 14, after going dark on Nov. 15 of last year when it hit the surface of Comet 67P harder than planned, bouncing the lander into a shadier spot where its solar panels could not charge its batteries sufficiently.
