Philae comet landing

Tweets about efforts to repower

14 Nov, 2014

Philae says on Twitter that its life on 67P has ‘just begun’. It doesn’t say what its current status is, but the tweet is the latest in a series announcing that it had completed a successful 35-degree rotation, and attempted to lift itself up to increase the sunlight available to its solar panels. Philae is currently ‘napping’ with its battery power low after saying it would use all its remaining power to communicate with Rosetta.
