"HELLO EARTH CAN YOU HEAR ME!!!".....solar energy saved the day.

Comets contained a lot of water and carbon, and "these are the same sorts of molecules responsible for getting life going,"
"What their trying to find out is whether the building blocks of life, in terms of water and carbon-bearing molecules, were actually delivered to Earth from comets."

Can't wait for data 😃

Very interesting. I just read an article in our newspaper about this. We will see if it goes to sleep again for good, or awakens in the next year.
