+ - ESA declares flagship Envisat observing satellite lost->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes ""The European Space Agency on Wednesday declared the Envisat environmental satellite lost one month after the bus-sized craft unexpectedly stopped communicating 10 years after its launch. 'Although chances of recovering Envisat are extremely low, the investigation team will continue attempts to re-establish contact while considering failure scenarios for the next two months,' ESA said in a written statement." This failure leaves a break in Earth observation data by ESA until the next generation satellites are launched in 2 years time."
