My condolences to the Planetary Society and to the Russian Space Agency. I hope that you have plans underway to launch Kosmos 2 because we need dreamers and instigators who step outside what we know that we can do and attempt what we only imagine.

seriously. I still prefer sea exploration when considering cost vs. gratification. but pictures of the solar system and exploration of it's secrets should be seen as essential.

Ah bummer it would have been cool if it had worked. But alas it appears it didn't even make it out of orbit but possibly crashed in my namesake. thanks for the post, I had no idea, anyone was even trying.
