Still nothing from Philae

Scientists hold breath for comet lander to wake. They’re considering listening for it continuously from this point on, as May and June are the likely months it will wake up (if it ever does).

I found this bit interesting:

The Rosetta team said they have a far better idea by now of where Philae ended up — within an area of about 30 by 50 metres (98 by 164 feet).

But they have still not been able to spot it on photos taken with Rosetta’s onboard OSIRIS camera, nor do they know if it is upright.

I think I know why: They’re still looking in the wrong place!!
