The Rosetta spacecraft was launched in 2004 and arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on August 6, 2014, becoming the first probe to rendezvous with a comet. On November 12, Rosetta dropped its Philae lander to the comet’s surface — another first. But Philae bounced and didn’t grab onto the comet in its designated landing spot. After three days, the lander’s battery died and it went into hibernation. It woke up and briefly communicated with Rosetta in June and July 2015 as the comet came closer to the sun. Mission scientists weren’t sure exactly where the probe had ended up. Until now.

FTC, Private Sector Lock Horns Over Consumer Data Protection


The major headline hacking event of 2014 involved data theft at a highly visible enterprise: Sony Pictures. Perhaps just as significant in e-commerce security was a 2014 federal court ruling which allows the Federal Trade Commission to continue penalizing commercial firms for failure to protect consumer data from hackers. That decision has been challenged, and in early March the FTC and its opponent will square off for oral arguments in court on whether the FTC has exceeded its authority for protecting consumer records.
