If Philae's solar cells and battery can last, will Philae and its instruments survive the outgassing as the comet loops around the sun? What is the planned timescale of observation events? Is it intended that Rosetta will maintain orbit or does the mission have a natural end-point?
Is this why, for the past month, I've ben hit by "Online Rx 35% discount" spam, sometimes four a day?
I've used a particular yahoo email address as a 'sign up' address for various things over many years. I think it's time to get a new email address and migrate all my 'serious and useful' accounts over to that.
"This company has shown a great deal of integrity by fully cooperating with investigators ...."

A dielectric material is not defined by its lack of ability to conduct electricity; the property of being dielectric refers to its ability to be polarised by an electric field. It may be that the silicon dioxide has dielectirc propertes that are useful in this application, or it may be that its properties as an insulator are why it is used. Either way, some stable, reversible and non-destructive change is taking place.
Has this actually been compared, by analysis of any recovered mammoth DNA?
Is it certain that these genes are active in the elephant and that an elephant does have a better sense of smell because of this?
Has anyone tried training and testing elephants to see if they can replace sniffer dogs ?
