Philae Lander Wakes Up!!!

I was so excited a few days ago when I found out that the Philae robot has woken up!

The robot that didn’t quite land in the designated area was lucky to even make the comet! But now after a long period of dormancy the probe has phoned home!

When it landed, the power ran flat after 60 hours on account of being in a dark ditch, but with the comet moving closer to the sun the lucky robot has powered up and has sent messages back to Earth.

This is great news and scientists are hoping to gather lots of data from this robot including the origin of life itself!
