Were drilling samples taken by SD2 and analysed by Ptolemy, COSAC, and ÇIVA?
Yes No (see update). From ESA's 15 November 2014 update on the Rosetta mission:
Pioneering Philae completes main mission before hibernation
15 November 2014
Rosetta’s lander has completed its primary science mission after nearly 57 hours on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
After being out of communication visibility with the lander since 09:58 GMT / 10:58 CET on Friday, Rosetta regained contact with Philae at 22:19 GMT /23:19 CET last night. The signal was initially intermittent, but quickly stabilised and remained very good until 00:36 GMT / 01:36 CET this morning.
In that time, the lander returned all of its housekeeping data, as well as science data from the targeted instruments, including ROLIS, COSAC, Ptolemy, SD2 and CONSERT. This completed the measurements planned for the final block of experiments on the surface.
The article later mentions that the science teams are already studying this data to establish what type of cometary materials have been sampled with Philae's drill. Refer to Rosetta blog for more up to date information as it is made available.
Update: Teams behind these mentioned Philae instruments also have their own Twitter feeds. Here's some (adding latest info):
- Philae COSAC (Cometary Sampling and Composition Experiment); Latest tweets suggest loss of subsurface data despite attempting to drill through the hard crust in desperate mode (aka power mode 4 beyond design specs). The team concludes that Surface must be >2 MPa hard!.
- MUPUS on Philae (MUlti PUrpose Sensor); It links to just released official DLR press release.
- Rosetta SD2 (Sample and Distribution Device)
- Philae_ROMAP (Rosetta Lander Magnetometer and Plasma Monitor)
- Philae Ptolemy (gas chromatograph and medium resolution mass spectrometer)
- and of course Philae Lander and ESA Rosetta Mission
Alas, no. Reported today:
