Remember Philae? It's still on its comet, and still hibernating. But scientists are hoping to hear a signal soon. Here are the key factors that will decide whether Philae wakes - or sleeps on.
Warming temperatures raise hopes that the comet lander will send out a signal.

#Paleontology is a weird subject to me. The #fossil record is very thin. But the #scientists find out rather much, and, after arguing for a while, they seem to agree on many things.
Having written that, whether the #Neanderthals were assimilated (to use a Borg term) or outcompeted, is something I have read so many different stories about, I do not know where to place this one.
