Russian Military Loses Control of New Satellite

 

Russia has lost contact with a recently launched GEO-IK-2 Reshetnev military satellite, the latest in a string of failures.

Space forces commander Lt. Gen. Oleg Ostapenko said the military was unable to establish radio communications with the satellite but is working to find its orbit and establish contact.

The satellite was intended for measuring or determining the Earth´s shape or locating the exact positions of points on its surface, its manufacturer said.

  I´m sure Nasa  
 
I´m sure Nasa has lost contact and/or control with their spacecrafts hundreds of times and re-established contact. Trial and error, except Nasa doesn´t release a lot to the media.

  Or perhaps  
 
a different countries military took control of the satellite, planted their own special software, and then will release the satellite so the Russians can re-establish contact.

Makes you wonder.
