WAKE UP ROSETTA! The Rosetta Spacecraft Wakes up on Monday

The Rosetta Spacecraft, the first spacecraft to orbit a comet and drop a lander on a comets surface, will wake up from 3 years hibernation on Monday. We hope.

Some spacecraft perform there missions flawlessly, some get to within a whisker of the mission and fail, every comet fan is crossing their fingers (or cultural equivalent), that Rosetta safely wakes up and completes the final leg of its 10 year flight to comet Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

A good article about the mission is here. Another at the Waiting for ISON blog. Source of the above image.

FOr Australians, "Wake Up Rosetta" echoes the Wiggles "WAKE UP JEFF".
