Philae sends new data

Before "falling asleep", the robot Philae sent new data to Earth. Even if, through the Twitter account, the first robot to be able to step on the surface of a comet confirmed that entered sleep mode, before the module, released by the probe Rosetta, managed to send new images.

Philae's battery is over, however. The reactivation of the appliance depends on the ability to capture energy through solar panels.

The Comet Churiumov-Guerasimenko's more than 500 million miles from Earth, somewhere between Jupiter and Mars. Continues the journey towards the Sun, where it should arrive in August.

Scientists consider this mission one of the biggest hits ever in space exploration.
