The Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) reported today, that about 30 fragments of a space probe Phobos Ground, with a total mass of 200 kg, can fall to the Earth's surface between January 10 to January 21, 2012, the most probable date of falling debris of the probe "Phobos-Grunt" is January 15, 2012. As reported the Russian Space Agency: "the dynamics of inhibition of spacecraft "Phobos-Grunt" in the atmosphere depends on a variety of technical and space factors, including and those factors, that are beyond the control." Estimated area of ​​impact debris of Phobos-Grunt defined band of the Earth's surface from 51.4 degrees south latitude to 51.4 degrees north latitude. A more precise location can be predicted no earlier, than one day prior to the fall of fragments of Phobos-Grunt on Earth. It is expected, that Earth's surface made most refractory debris of Phobos-Grunt, which weight does not exceed of 200 kg, and toxic components of the fuel of Phobos-Grunt will burn at an altitude of 100 kilometers. radioactive materials (cobalt-57) which are installed in one of the scientific instruments of Phobos-Grunt - in the spectrometer, have a mass not exceeding of 10 micrograms and a small half-life, so it will not cause radioactive contamination in the area of falling of Phobos-Grunt.
