Mystery persists over Russian spacecraft fall site
Moscow: Russian officials say they still have no firm information where a failed Mars moon probe plummeted to Earth, the day after it went down.
The unmanned Phobos-Ground probe fell yesterday after being stuck in Earth`s orbit for two months.
News agencies had cited Defence Ministry spokesman Alexei Zolotukhin as saying yesterday that fragments of the craft fell in the Pacific Ocean off Chile`s coast. But Zolotukhin told The Associated Press today that estimate was based on calculations, and no witness reports had been received.
The deputy head of Russia`s space agency, Anatoly Shilov, told state news channel Vesti that agency data assumed the craft broke up somewhere over Brazil. Agency spokespeople said today that they had no further information.
