Rosetta mission lander Philae is DOA for now.

The Rosetta spacecraft that successfully landed on the comet, known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, was off the mark by one kilometer. Not bad when you consider the distance involved to get there. But now it sits on the comet in a location that doesn't allow the sun to recharge the solar array. Game over for now.
