Space engineers report that they have now received a signal from the Rosetta spacecraft, which has been sleeping for more than two years.

Rosetta is awake!

Launched from the Guiana Space Centre in French Guiana in March, 2004, Rosetta is on a 10-year mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The spacecraft was placed in a hibernation mode in June, 2011. The wake-up procedure began at 4 a.m. CST (10:00 UTC) this morning with four alarm clocks on board Rosetta set to go off, triggering a series of changes aboard the spacecraft that would result in its antenna pointing toward Earth and sending a signal our way. That signal has now been received. Rosetta is currently over 500 million miles (800 million kilometers) away. Rosetta will study Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko – called “67P” for short, by astronomers – up close as it enters the inner solar system.

Space engineers believe Rosetta’s navigation camera could glimpse the comet from a distance of 100,000 kilometers by March, 2014. WATCH: This Is One Time-Lapse Big Oil Doesn't Want You To See.
