OK, the shirt is a bit geeky but so what? I think its more of a sci-fi/anime thing and as you say, real sexis people are upset about some cartoon women :shrug: :banghead:

Lander Philae wakes up as the batteries have now recharged due to it being closer to the sun.

Rosetta is the orbiter, Philae is the lander, and there are/were plans to dump Rosetta on the comet near the end of the year. I doubt either craft will last long once they pass closest to the sun in mid-August, despite it remaining outside the earth's orbit. December is still pencilled in as the shut off date since Rosetta has problems with a leak, stability 'wheels' and overall fuel.
