Caption

Phobos-Grunt spacecraft preparation. Workers handling the propulsion module of the Phobos-Grunt interplanetary spacecraft at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. Phobos-Grunt was a Russian sample return mission to Phobos, one of Mars' moons. It was launched on 9th November 2011 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, but subsequent rocket burns failed, leaving it stranded in low Earth orbit. Efforts to reactivate the craft were unsuccessful, and it fell back to Earth in an uncontrolled re-entry on 15th January 2012.
