Philae – Where Are You?

This great image shows Philae heading across the comet ready for touchdown at 15:43, then bouncing and heading off to the right.

The final location of Philae is still not known, but after touching down and bouncing again at 17:25 GMT, it reached its final location at 17:32 GMT

I think it’s really great that you can see the indentation at the touchdown point.

Philae is now in a state of quiet hibernation, but it was able to send back a full set of data for the scientists to pour over!

Good luck Philae and sleep well!
