Submission + - NASA Glory satellite fails to reach orbit (bbc.co.uk)

Petaris writes: NASA's Glory satellite has failed to reach orbit because of a fairing separation failure. The satellite has likely fallen into the ocean near the Antarctic. The Taurus XL rocket and the Glory satellite were both constructed by Orbital Sciences Corporation. A similar failure occurred in 2009 with NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO).
