The lost lander has been spotted on the "Space Duck" comet it landed on 664 days ago.
European space scientists are celebrating tonight after finding a comet lander they’d almost given up hope of ever seeing again.
The extraordinary mission of ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft around comet 67P is nearly over: on 30 September the craft will crash land on its surface and end a 12 year voyage through…
The first space probe to land on a comet has had its communications cut with Earth for the final time.
European scientists have given up hope of restoring contact with space probe Philae, which successfully landed on a comet in a pinpoint operation
The Rosetta mission has detected oxygen on comet 67P, a discovery that could change our understanding of how the solar system formed.
The rubber duck-shaped comet being tracked by Europe’s Rosetta probe is in fact a double bill. Scientists say data from the probe shows the comet
At around 4AM EST ( 2AM GMT), the comet 67p/Churyumov-Gerasimenko will be the closest to the Sun since the European Space Agency mission Rosetta

The European Space Agency has extended its Rosetta mission for nine months, the maximum possible duration until the craft will be running out of fuel
Rosetta scientists start a fourth period of attempts to make contact with the Philae lander which has been in a deep sleep on Comet 67P since November 2014.
These are among the first close-up images of a comet being studied by European Space Agency (ESA).

Space missions have an increasing impact on our daily lives down on Earth. Technologies used up there can be transferred for use in medical science and other areas.
Early results from Europe’s Rosetta spacecraft challenge the theory that comets delivered water to our planet.
On analysis of water coming from
The Rosetta probe has managed to detect organic molecules in the comet’s atmosphere, before it ran out of power.
The Philae lander instruments
The European Space Agency (ESA) has landed a probe on a comet. It is a first in space exploration and the climax of a decade-long mission to get
