KOROLEV (Moscow region), November 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The fallout area of the fragments of the interplanetary station Phobos-Grunt, which continues to stay on the near Earth orbit, can be detected not earlier that a day before this, state secretary of deputy chief of the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) Vitaly Davydov said on Tuesday.
“The practice shows that the debris falling area can be detected not earlier than a day before this. It is senseless to say where it will fall before this,” he said with confidence.
“The atmosphere is breathing, the Sun also behaves in various ways, it (the station) can have different orientations, particularly if it is uncontrollable, therefore, more accurate information (about the falling area) can be obtained just 12 hours before this,” Davydov elaborated.
