Experts from the European space Agency is taking the first several months in an attempt to establish a connection with the missing on the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko landing module Philae. In the period from 12 to 20 March assumes the presence of 11 suitable for connection to an apparatus intervals of time.
"It is possible that the module is already awakened from its winter sleep. But with all that in 500 million km from the Earth he had too little chance also less power to tell us about it," says 1 of the project participants Rosetta Cohen was Herts of the German aerospace center.
Researchers inform that at the moment the descent probe receives about twice as much solar energy than in early November 2014, when he landed on the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. However, the closer the comet to the Sun, the more chances that Philae will come alive.
That machine came out of hibernation, the desired temperature of minus 45 degrees Celsius and above. As we are told researchers, in case of success of the operation when 1 they are going to find out the energy system of the descent of the probe.
Remember that the first in the history of the human race landing on the plane of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko Philae probe was carried out on 12 November 2014. Later it became known that the Philae could not harpoons attached to the comet the first time, he bounced a couple of times from her and was in the shadow of the great mountains, the shadow of which have limited access probe to the sunlight. Deprived of light and the tension at its own battery, the module fell into hibernation.
