The first robot to land on a planet  was switched  off at the end of July,  having bounced upon landing and ended up in a shadow which prevented its batteries from recharging.   It ended its life with  a series of sad tweets, but it served its purpose,  and its rough landing should help scientists learn how to prevent future misadventures.
