What would Mars probe loss mean for Russian space programme?
MOSCOW, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Data received from a Russian Mars probe at the European Space Agency in Australia is impossible to interpret, a space industry source told RIA Novosti Thursday.
The European Space Agency says it is ceasing efforts to try to contact Russia's wayward Mars probe, Phobos-Grunt, after a week-and-a-half of silence.
Russia's space agency says its unsuccessful Mars probe, Phobos-Grunt, will probably fall back to Earth early next month.
Up to 30 pieces of the 14-ton Phobos-Grunt Mars probe could reach the ground.
Russia's space agency on Wednesday pinpointed the likely trajectory of its stranded Mars probe, Phobos-Grunt, predicting it would crash into the Indian Ocean west of Jakarta later this week.
The failed Mars probe Phobos-Grunt crashed to Earth on Jan. 15.
