Following a request from Russian mission authorities, ESA is continuing its efforts to communicate with Phobos Grunt via the Agency’s 15 m-diameter Maspalomas tracking station located in Spain. Communication attempts on Monday, Tuesday and today, which made use of a redundant transmitter on board the spacecraft, did not succeed. The Agency has agreed to continue the effort until Friday, 9 December.
