Rosetta's lander Philae has awaken from hibernation

Recommended Posts

 

Anyone interested in real world space science, here it is. The Rosetta probe was launched in March 2, 2004 and reached its target comet on August 2014. With a series of manoeuvres, it achieved actual orbit one month later on September 10. About 2 months later, we landed a smaller probe, Philae from Rosetta and since then, its been in hibernation, with concerns that it never attached on to the comet properly. And now its back in action sending data back to the ground team. More about it in the link below.

AMBITION, a science fiction short film that celebrates the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Rosetta mission. It was featured last year when the Rosetta probe made its first approach. Thought it appropriate to link it here for anyone who missed it.

Enjoy the short film, starring Aiden Gillen from the "The Game of Thrones" series

I'm loving all the recent 'space science' which is hammering around twitter atm. International Space Station, Mars Rover, New Horizon to Pluto and now this has finally started working after worries they had landed too close to a cliff to capture enough solar rays to charge the probe. But it seems after a while it has now (last thursday) started running. They hope as the asteroid moves the probe will get more power to complete further tests one of which is to try to unfold the mysteries of how life began.

 

Thanks for sharing bud o7

​Not to talk about the increasing science movies, first Interstellar and now The Marsian! :D

​Hell yeah, The Martian looks awesome. Funny that Damon is in this too along with another co-star from Interstellar, playing really similar parts.

​not to mention that in the Martian he gets stranded again, at least he's stuck on a planet closer to home

​Saw a lot of comments about that too. xD There's also a Norwegian actor in there, oddly playing a german character I think.
