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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
