Rosetta and Philae status update
No contact has been made with Philae since Thursday 9 July. The data acquired at that time are being investigated by the lander team to try to better understand Philae’s situation.
Issues: possible shift in the position of the lander, affecting its ability to communicate; one each of transmission and receiving units not working properly; position of Rosetta forced to change due to increasing emissions from the comet.
