Russian “Phobos-Grunt” probe fails to set course to Mars.
14:06
The "Phobos-Grunt” robotic spacecraft failed to reach a flying orbit to Mars after separation from the launch vehicle. The spacecraft was supposed to use its own booster to reach the designated flying trajectory, but failed to do so.
The technicians have three days to start the on-board engine and put the probe on the designated trajectory before the batteries run out. The potential loss of the Phobos-Grunt probe could deliver another serious blow to the country’s space exploration program as Russia has previously failed several attempts to send unmanned spacecraft to Mars.
