Yesterday was the first day ESA was hoping that the Philae lander would wake up

Scientists Will Try to Contact the Comet Lander on March 12, though they think mid-May holds a better chance.

I either had forgotten, or not known, that they’d named Philae’s actual landing spot (wherever it is) ‘Abydos’.

Did they make contact with Philae? Answer:

They’re going to keep the channel open for the next 8 days just in case.
