The European probe Rosetta woke up Monday after a 31-month hibernation in a nearly decade-old quest to explore a comet, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced. "Hello, world!" ESA said on Twitter, mimicking the signal sent back from deep space by the billion-dollar unmanned craft. The agency described Rosetta as a "sleeping beauty" that had emerged from a long sleep.
