Europe ends search for Stranded Russian Mars Mission

Too bad for the stranded Russian Mars Mission Phobos-Grunt, as the European Space Agency announced on Friday that it was now ceasing any further attempts to get a signal.

The Russian craft has been stuck circling the Earth since its launch in early November. Apart from some brief radio contact with the wayward probe just over a week ago, there has been total silence from the spacecraft.

The Russian engineers have not lost hope and are still trying to recover the stranded spacecraft.
