Okay so apparently after coming to the conclusion that rocket science was actually too complicated for the rocket scientists to figure out in this instance, the Russians have given up trying to contact their strandard should have been Mars bound probe and have admitted it will be falling back to Earth next month sometime.
Of course in effort to reassure people although they don't know where it will fall they are hopeful that as the last two satelites to fall didn't hit anything, this one won't either.
Which probably proves that the rocket scientists in this case haven't heard of the old adage "best of three".
But at least they didn't wheel out that other thing they usually say in that no one has ever been hit by smalling debris yet. Because they really couldn't ( or shouldn't) tempt fate like that.
