Philae transmits data before losing power

RIP (probably), Philae. There is a chance that it’ll receive enough sunlight as the comet approaches the Sun that it might wake up, but I’m not hopeful.

They deployed the drill, but given the orientation that Philae was in, they’re not sure if it even touched ground. However, if it did, the observations were transmitted.
