Russian Mars Probe Returns To Earth Two And A Half Years Early


Atmospheric rentry expected on 2012-01-16 T 05:51 +8 anywhere between a latitude of 51.4° north and 51.4° south as of this posting. Latest ongoing analysis of Phobos-Grunt's reentry trajectory by the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) determine the area of impact to be somewhere within the southern Pacific Ocean off the Republic of Chile though exact location can only be ascertained not more than two hours before impact.
