Go Hayabusa! The little probe that could :)

It always amazes me how much the engineers can do when their machine is out of control millions of miles away. With Hayabusa in a spin, I presume they could only send or receive for very brief snatches. Somehow they've managed to level her out and are working on getting the ion engine up and running to bring her home. Fingers crossed...
