Tweet One might think One might think that after being able to bring the launch date forward from 15 to 3 April (since when do launch dates come forward?), that after successfully achieving the shortest launch campaign in ESA’s history, after having executed the pre-launch simulations in the shortest time ever, after a flawless launch, after a perfect (although incredibly complex) deployment sequence of the solar arrays and radar antenna,  after ...

Our prototype lander Morpheus successfully completed its 7th free flight at Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday, April 2. The lander, fueled by methane and oxygen, both considered "green" propellants, does not carry a crew, but is autonomously controlled and carries its own hazard avoidance system to pick out safe landing spots.

#Rosetta 's #Philae  lander is awake!
Tweet Rosetta’s lander Philae was successfully reactivated today as part of the mission’s on-going instrument checkout phase. Unlike the orbiter, which had to wake up and establish contact with Earth autonomously based on a pre-set alarm clock, Philae and the all of the scientific instruments on the mission get a personal wake-up call from Earth (via Rosetta). Philae’s wake-up command was in fact uploaded last week and executed at 06:00 GMT this ...
