The Fall of Russia’s Mars Probe Phobos-Grunt

Posted on January 14, 2012


Russian space officials now estimate that Phobos-Grunt may fall to Earth beetween Jan. 15 and 16, with a center on Jan. 15 at 4:51 p.m. EST (2151 GMT). A map released by Russia’s Federal Space Agency shows the potential crash zone in the southern Pacific Ocean, just off the southwestern coast of Chile. Phobos-Grunt will definitely come down somewhere between 51 degrees north and 51 degress south latitude.
