Russia’s Roscomos: Official proposal to the US to investigate Phobos Grunt – BIG NO!

This is interesting: Roscomos the Russian Federal Space Agency requested the help and expertise of the United States to take part in the investigation of the Phobos Grunt automatic interplanetary apparatus. This request was after a rebuke by the US over one of the versions of failure was that the Russian interplanetary station might have been affected by a U.S. radar…

In fact the Western media made big jokes and the government in America made scoffs about Russia and her space program and then fed lots of Kool-Aid to the masses about how Russia is using the US as a scapegoat to cover her short comings in space…

But alas it now seems that the United States has officially refused to take part in an investigation into the causes of the failure of the Phobos Grunt automatic interplanetary apparatus, Roscosmos Deputy chief Anatoly Shilov told journalists on Thursday… Itar-Tass

During a Russian investigation into the causes of the failure of the Phobos-Grunt interplanetary station many different versions were studied, including a version that the Russian interplanetary station might have been affected by a U.S. radar. This version was studied on Russian type radar ground facilities, Anatoly Shilov has confirmed…

Russia gave America the chance to back up their scoffs and media jokes, but it looks as though someone put – someone else on the spot. End of story. End of discussion… 🙂

PS: Seems to me that we would be glad to help out in an investigation of sorts like this. We cannot ever learn enough about space and things that happen in space. Every detail is very important for lives not to be lost in space and more equipment lost in space. So the fact that we did not jump at the opportunity to help Russia to improve their space program and give America more knowledge about space and happenings, makes me contemplate about what really did happen to the Phobos Grunt?
