Found in space: Lost Philae comet lander finally turns up jammed in space rock crevice

Missing comet lander Philae has finally been found after two years lost in space. The good news is that the mystery of the lander’s location has been solved  –  but the bad news is that it’s trapped in a dark, rocky crevice on a comet.

The revelation by the European Space Agency has sparked excitement in the world of astronomy and beyond as many continued to root for the little robot to be located after it crash-landed in November 2014.

The ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft captured images of the lander stuck in a dark crack on surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on Friday, less than a month before the mission is due to end.
