Good question...  after the "test" prior to "Yuri's Day" the battery was 
apparently depleted.  Whether it has been recharged or replaced, who knows? 
I'd still like to know whether NASA ever signed off on powering up the 
satellite inside the space station...  seems like much of the time Roscosmos 
forgets that they have PARTNERS in this venture.
