Slow down tiger…

According to Ria Novosti, Roscosmos is claiming they are going to rebuild and try again for their Phobos sample return mission. I admire the ambition, but why don’t we first figure out what crashed the last mission (because I doubt it was “cosmic rays” or “Alaskan radar”), get your manned program back underway, and deal with the other problems with your launch vehicles? I’m a little bit befuddled by the constant quotes in the English translation media from Popovkin. Perhaps they feel a bit cocky that they are the only entity in the world capable of launching people into space?
