"Russia's space agency has so far failed to contact its $13-million unmanned Phobos-Grunt Mars probe, which it lost contact with immediately after launch early on Wednesday -- and may end up as the 18th in a long string of unsuccessful Russian missions to the Red Planet. ... The probe is stuck in a dangerously low orbit, officials said, and if uncontacted could eventually crash down to Earth." (11/10/11)
