Google+ Hangout: Phobos-Grunt re-entry

On January 15, 2012, the Russian spacecraft Phobos-Grunt re-entered over the Pacific ocean and burned up. During this time, I reported the event live with Planetary Society science journalist Emily Lakdawalla on a Google+ Hangout.

So what has Phobos-Grunt been up to?

The final landing zone was in the Pacific. If you were the gambling sort you would tend to guess the Pacific for any object crashing into the Earth simply because it is the largest single target. On an unrelated note, if you are the gambling sort and want to borrow money at 10 points vig per week, let me know.
