Looks like the harpoons didn't deploy, it bounced once, maybe twice and now it's possibly on its side, things are a bit sketchy for now, it's alive but not able to fully charge it's battery, as it is now it'll be dead by sometime on Saturday and no way can they deploy the drill in its current situation as the force from the drill will make it rotate or go who knows where... time will tell.
