Please accept our sincere apologies for being so long in updating the blog!
A number of events conspired to enforce a lag in reporting the results of the manoeuvre activities in January. First, an unexpected 'safe mode' occurred - in which the spacecraft experienced a problem and basically reset itself, waiting for fresh commands - on 18 January during one of the planned long-duration burns.
Next, the flight control team were very involved in resetting Rosetta, figuring out what caused the safe mode and implementing a fix - which they did. :-)
This took time, during which we didn't post while we waited for news on the success of the fix. Further, in the middle of January, your hard-working Rosetta blog editorial team got a bit occupied with ESA's new ATV Johannes Kepler blog.
To make up for all the delay, we're planning a very nice update next week and will speak with Spacecraft Operations Manager Andrea Accomazzo at ESOC to get the full details on the past fortnight of activities. -- Daniel
