One of the coolest space missions of recent time, to be carried out by Russia's Phobos-Grunt, failed last November. Now the unsuccessful probe has crash-landed in the Pacific Ocean.
The Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques has taken this hot picture of the Russian Mars 13-ton probe Phobos-Grunt as it falls to planet Earth. It may hit tomorrow, but we still don't know where.
One of the most interesting interplanetary spacecraft has failed before starting its voyage to Mars. It was going to land on Phobos, dig a piece and bring it back to Earth. It also carried Earths's life for a very clever experiment.
