  • Comet lander shuts down as batteries go flat after sending data

    Comet lander shuts down as batteries go flat after sending data
    A pioneering robotic spacecraft shut down on Saturday after radioing results of its first and probably last batch of scientific experiments from the surface of a comet, scientists said. Batteries aboard the European Space Agency’s Philae comet...
  • Philae lander is drilling into its new comet home

    Philae lander is drilling into its new comet home
    The Philae lander has begun drilling into its new comet home, the European Space Agency reported Friday morning. After the robotic probe's historic landing on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko earlier this week, scientists said they were concerned about...

    Space probe lands on comet, fails to anchor down
    The European Space Agency landed a probe on a comet on Wednesday, a first in space exploration and the climax of a 10-year-odyssey, but an anchoring system problem may hamper planned investigations into the origins of Earth and the solar system. The 220-...
