Microjunkie: As someone who happens to be graced with the name Murphy, I'd ask you please to avoid the cliche of "Murphy's Law" in the future.  Thank you!

Dylan: I'm shocked that you're shocked about Russia's reluctance to be forthcoming after the recent disclosures about the NSA's spying campaign by the US.  Forthcoming, indeed!

From one who has a dog named Murphy--this is one expensive lesson. I truly am amazed that it doesn't seem to be a completely isolated problem. It makes you wonder how much better industry does...

This is Murphy's Law at it's finest. If there's a chance that something can be done wrong, then someone will do it.

Payload, as I recall, was estimated at over $200m (while the insurance on the payload is reported to be $182m)... all in US dollars.

All mounted backwards? Well consistency is good I guess, but the comment made me laugh! Can you imagine explaining this sort of thing to the bosses?

I agree - it shocked me too. Especially would have figured that the sources would have wanted the limelight. Go figure.

Thanks for your post. That would be aggressie under the best of circumstances. I wonder how much the whole bill has been for the wasted efforts.

Warren3- useful facts to add to the discussion. Thank you. It does seem as though they are perhaps a little too aggressive on the scheduling.

A Program in Distress

Interesting FACTS: This crash is the fifth major LAUNCH failure of a Proton-M rocket since 2010. The program was grounded by the Russians just last December and restarted only as recently as March, since which they had successfully launched THREE Proton-M rockets before this launch failure. That's roughly one launch per month; seems like a program in a hurry. [Source= http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=russian-rocket-crash-deta] It's clearly a difficult task to push 20 tons of payload into orbit... and as of late it's proving especially difficult for the RFSA.
