The Philae comet lander has regained radio contact with the Rosetta satellite and is sending data back to earth.
There were fears its battery was about to die after it landed in the shadow of a cliff on the comet, meaning the solar panels were rendered useless.
Now it is a race against time to see what information can be fed back before its primary battery is exhausted as it is unlikely the second batteries will charge up enough to extend the operation.
Thsee incredible images show the moment the probe dropped from its satellite and first landed on Comet 67P five days ago.
Scientists racing against time to keep the Philae comet lander operating are debating whether to try 'hopping' the probe to a new location.
After the first man-made craft landed on a moving comet we look at the pictures sent back from the daring descent to the historic landing.
