    This from Interfax, a few days old but perhaps still of interest:
    Nov 8 2005 5:00PM
    Russian satellite declared lost
    MOSCOW. Nov 8 (Interfax) - The Mozhayets-5 satellite, launched from
    Plesetsk space center in the north of Russia on October 27, has been
    declared lost, a source close to a mixed commission probing the causes
    of the incident told Interfax on Tuesday.
    "The satellite did not separate from the second stage of the Kosmos-3M
    launch vehicle. Ground services cannot assume control over it and it
    is officially considered lost," the source said.
