Comet landing: Where next for Philae mission? an update of the status of Rosetta and the Philae Lander.

Love the quote "MUPUS scientists tried each of the hammer's three power settings - and after failing to penetrate the surface using those, proceeded to a "secret" fourth setting. This setting, nicknamed "desperate mode", broke the hammer!!!
