Space Agency says goodbye to Philae

Scientists have decided to give up trying to contact the comet lander Philae after lots of attempts without success, closing a captivating chapter in an historic quest. Philae’s comet host is moving further and further away from the Sun and its battery-boosting rays. The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission dropped the robot onto Comet 67P in November 2014. The lander did send back some information but the last contact was in July 2015.The comet is now travelling into a much colder part of space, with temperatures below -180C… Scientists are now focusing on landing the Rosetta space craft on Comet 67P in September.
