+ - Russia Launches, Loses, Finds Military Satellite->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "From Interfax reports, a GEO-IK-2 spacecraft launched yesterday from Plesetsk only to go missing hours after launch. Its intended purpose is to measure specific curvature of the Earth to aid Russia's military in building excellent 3D maps. Early today, they announced that they found it but unfortunately it's in the wrong orbit. China's state media called the launch 'successful'. Reuters reminds us of a GLONASS mishap which resulted in Medvedev firing two top space officials."
