Time to send somebody to Siberia

2nd Launch Disaster in 3 Weeks Strikes Russia, Destroying Proton Rocket and Mexican Comsat.

This is the 2nd failure in a row with Proton, and remember back in October when it put a satellite in the wrong orbit? The Proton class have never been very reliable (about 90% success rate), but it recently went through an upgrade to the M variant, and the Russians have had more problems than usual with “M”.

If I were a US Astronaut, I think I’d come down with the flu until SpaceX or Boeing can get me to ISS. Just sayin’…
