Fear of Soil part II of III

Seems the poor ol' Russians failed to achieve hyperbolic orbit after all!  Final stage did not engage leaving "Phobos-Grunt and friend" stranded in a disintegrating orbit.  Russia's got 3 days to fix the issue, which is based on the payload's programming.  Let's hope for catastrophic failure! 

I was going to toast the Ruskies some Stolichnaya Vodka Gold that I've been saving for such an occasion of their "great success" but I'm going to hold-off.  I might be toasting American A.H.Hirsh whiskey in 3 days, instead!

Do svidaniya, comrades.
