While the little German Philae lander which had been carried to Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko by the ESA Rosetta spacecraft has been dead for several months (it stopped transmitting last year), at least we now know where it is buried. Or rather not buried. While the craft was originally thought to have bounced into a crevice, it is in fact lying on its side on the surface of the comet underneath an out-cropping of rock.
Rosetta’s lander Philae has been identified in OSIRIS narrow-angle camera images taken by the Rosetta probe on 2 September 2016 from a distance of 2.7 km. Philae’s 1 m-wide body and two of its three legs can be seen extended from the body. May it rest in peace.
