Phobos-Grunt stuck

I am very sad to hear that the Roscosmos Mars probe has encountered a glitch. The scheduled Fregat rocket burns to raise the Earth orbit and then escape Earth's gravity well did not occur and for a time the agency lost track of the craft. It is unknown yet the root cause but if it's a software problem they might be able to fix it.

Where's a space shuttle when you need one?!
