INDONESIA---A strong undersea earthquake hit
eastern Indonesia yesterday, triggering a small
tsunami and some panic but no casualties or major
The 7.1 quake occurred west of Halmahera island,
which is about four hours flight from the capital,
Indonesia s meteorological agency said a tsunami
wave of nine centimetres (3.54 inches) washed onto
the small island of Jailolo but caused no damage.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre later lifted its
advisory for potential hazardous waves for coastal
The quake was strongly felt in several cities in
eastern Indonesia, sending many people to run
from homes and other buildings, officials and res-
The world s largest archipelago, Indonesia is prone
to earthquakes due to its location on the Pacific
Ring of Fire, an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in
the Pacific Basin.
In 2004, a monster quake off the tip of Sumatra
Island triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people
in a dozen countries. Most of the deaths were on
The Philae lander on the distant comet 67P has
sent another stream of data back to Earth before
The little probe delivered everything expected from
it, just as its failing battery dropped it into standby
Philae is pressed up against a cliff. Deep shadows
mean it cannot now get enough light on to its solar
panels to recharge its systems.
The European Space Agency (ESA) fears this contact
may have been the robot s last---certainly for a while.
A tweet from the official Philae lander account
said: "I ll tell you more about my new home, comet
67P soon... zzzzz."
Philae descended to the comet s surface on Wednes-
day---the first time in history that a space mission
has made a soft landing on a comet.
The next opportunity to talk to Philae was set to
begin at around 10:00 GMT (11:00 CET), when the
orbiting Rosetta satellite---which delivered it to the
4km-wide "ice mountain"---was due to come over
But with only 1.5 hours of sunshine falling on the
robot during the comet s 12-hour day, it seems doubt-
ful the battery will have recovered enough performance
to complete the radio link.
Engineers did manage to maximise the possibility
of it happening, though, by sending a command to
reorientate the lander.
Even if the probe falls silent over the weekend,
researchers say they are thrilled with the amount of
data already acquired.
Stephan Ulamec, lander manager, said: "Prior to
falling silent, the lander was able to transmit all
science data gathered during the First Science
"This machine performed magnificently under
tough conditions, and we can be fully proud of the
incredible scientific success Philae has delivered."
Professor Mark McCaughrean, senior scientific
adviser to the ESA, told BBC Radio 5 live they were
Whatever happens to Philae, Rosetta will continue
to make its remote observations of 67P. (BBC)
