It has emerged that the Phobos-Grunt spacecraft launched by Russians may or may not have landed on Mars recently.
The European Space Agency has said that it is unlikely to be able to salvage much from the said probe as they "don't have the foggiest" where it is.
"I guess we should have put a camera or something on it," said the Russian Space Science People "we fired it up into the air as fast as we could in the direction of Mars and hoped for the best. To be honest it could have landed thirty miles away in a pond and we would be none the wiser."
Scientists are not disheartened and have vowed to continue firing things into the sky in the hope that it will catch the attention of a little alien or something. "Just for it to bring back a little rock somehow would be nice."
There are unconfirmed reports that the probe has been spotted on the roof of the Space Offices adjacent to the spot from which it was launched, smashed into lots of tiny little pieces. "If this is the case" said a man with his mouth, "it probably didn't make it to Mars at all, but I guess we will never truly know."
