News brief: Phobos-Grunt has fallen to ground

Topics: Phobos and Shuttle LIFE, Planetary Society Projects, mission status, Phobos-Grunt and Yinghuo-1

Just a brief news update: the Russian military is stating that at 17:45 UT, Phobos-Grunt fell into the Pacific Ocean. I will wait some time (most likely until tomorrow) to write a detailed wrapup, to see if other independent or more detailed reports come in.
