Failed Russian Spy Satellite Will Fall Back To Earth

A Kanopus-ST satellite, launched aboard a Soyuz-2-1v on Dec. 5th, 2015, was supposed to go into polar orbit. But Russian media reports the bird failed to separate from its upper stage and will re-enter Earth's atmosphere on or about Dec. 8th, 2015. Part of the satellite's mission was to test submarine tracking capabilities.

The story is too old to be commented.
