After the disturbances associated with the dramatic landing on the 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet, Phil's landing module was able to look around and even do some research before the batteries landed.
But where did the landing module end up? His landing was far from perfect. He slipped across the dusty surface of the comet and stood in the shadows. Without the sunlight needed for recharging, the module was silent. True, there is hope that the module will come to life after the comet changes its orientation, and the sun's rays fall on the batteries. The situation was complicated by the fact that the exact location of the landing module landing on the surface of the comet was unknown. Experts of the European Space Agency for months inspected images of the surface of the comet 67P in high resolution. Since December, due to changes in the situation, the orbital module could not come close to the comet - emissions of dust and gas could damage its navigation system.
After new analyzes, scientists think they have found a landing module in cold terrain. The bright spot shining in the sun, they think, is very similar to the landing module.
