Hook: After 31 months of rest, space vessel Rosetta finally “wakes up” and resumes transmission to Earth.

Nut: Rosetta is a space vessel that is currently chasing a comet and has been in hibernation mode since June 2011.

Explanation: Rosetta was first made in 2004 to study and land on a specific comet that has been orbiting our solar system. It has passed by Earth 3 times and on its latest rotation needed to go further away from the sun. Because of that it had to enter hibernation mode. Now the vessel is finally closer to the sun again and can recharge as usual.

Twanger: Now is no time to rest for Rosetta or Scientists as there is new information to be gathered.
