Turns out, China’s Yutu rover was only *mostly* dead

China’s moon rover Yutu functioning but stationary. I get the not-moving part. Moon regolith is a bitch and much more abrasive than Earth or Martian soil. What I don’t get is how did it actually wake up after all this time?

Of course, a rover that can’t move isn’t going to get much science done.
