D'oh, Looks Like Another Beagle 2 Moment

A few hours ago a probe was launched from a sub in the Barrents Sea. The probe was the Planetary Society's Cosmos 1. This was to be the first test of a controlable solar sail space craft. Unfortunately no telemetry has been received from the craft and at this time the craft seems to be lost. So spare a thought for some very depressed scientists and engineers as you go about your business today.
