That's because it's not Finished yet, Phil.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Wow, Doug has barely been out of the country a week, and the place has gone down the tubes.

On a more serious note...

Regarding the earlier Phobos missions (I didn't want to start a whole new thread for one question): Phobos 1 failed on its way to Mars. I'm trying to find anything I can on the expected Mars flyby date and distance, even though the spacecraft was not working. Can anyone help?

in Robotic Exploration of the Solar System - part 2 I have written the date as 23 January 1989, but I don't remember where that info came from. and I have no informations on the flyby distance

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

Thanks for that. It's too bad that METNET can not be carried. On another note there's a very nice paper on landing site selection in Solar System Research, v. 44, no. 1, Feb. 2010, by Sasha Basilevsky and Tania Shingareva.

Yes, they're getting ready to transport it to Kazakhstan strapped on top of a Lada.
