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.

Scientists will try to reawaken Rosetta’s lander as Comet 67P approaches the Sun

Philae
We lost contact with Philae months ago, when the comet lander failed to touch down and bounced across the surface of comet 67P, but plans are being laid to reactivate the little lander as it races towards the sun.
