Well the Philae comet lander did indeed run out of power after landing off-course in the shadow of a crater's lip on comet 67P, but it got to drill into the comet first and run some other experiments, and send back the results, so we'll see if anything interesting comes out of that data. There's a chance Philae could catch enough sunlight at some point to wake back up for a little while. Meanwhile, its mothership, Rosetta, will continue to orbit the comet for the next 13 months or so as 67P arcs toward the Sun.


Here's a sketch I mailed off recently to a supporter of the A* Patreon campaign, where readers help me keep producing this webcomic by automatically sending me a few bucks each month:


It doubled as a practice sketch for what ended up as page 11 of this episode.
