Submission + - Phobos-Grunt Probe Malfunctions (guardian.co.uk)

Foxhoundz writes: "The much anticipated launch of the Phobos-Grunt spacecraft headed for Mars's moon is off to a rocky start as the probe somehow got stuck in Earth's orbit. The Guardian writes:

Engineers have three days to regain control of the $163m Phobos-Grunt probe that was designed to collect rock and soil samples from Mars's moon, Phobos, and return them to Earth for scientific study.
