Indonesian Satellite Found After Russian Spacecraft Failure

Contact has been made with an Indonesian telecommunications satellite which went missing after a failed launch on the Russian rocket last week, Russian space agency reports.

       The Indonesian Telekom 3 and another satellite, Russia's Express MD2, failed to reach their target orbit due to an emergency situation, which occurred during firing of the Briz M upper stage. Both the booster and the two satellites were not detected on the transition orbit.

       Earlier specialists admitted that the chance to establish contacts with the booster and to deliver the satellites on the designated orbit are practically non-existent. Now they are planning to take care of the controlled maneuvering of the satellite off orbit, if Indonesia's PT Telekom gives permission for the tests. Unfortunately, the satellite's designed using is impossible now. 

       PT Telekom spent some $200 million to purchase and launch the Telekom-3.

      Russian space agency Roscosmos has already suspended all Proton-M launches until the inquiry group states its findings.
