The Philae lander on the distant comet 67P has re-established radio contact with its orbiting Rosetta satellite and is sending data from the surface.

It ends a tense wait for the European Space Agency, amid fears that the lander's battery was about to die.

Scientists will be most keen to see if the probe has managed to get a surface sample of the comet with its drill.

The probe has been sending pictures and other scientific data ever since, relayed by the Rosetta satellite.
