That solar sail thing where the Russians were going to shoot it up in an ICBM? Last time I was on this forum it was all the rage. <br /><br />Dedicated to Colin, the first human black hole.

IIRC the second stage of the booster failed, but it was considered a success on behalf of the solar sail team because their sail did everything it was supposed to correctly, it just didn't get enough altitude. I believe that they are scheduled to try again soon.

They where set to launch, however they had an issue with the payload so it is delayed.

Oh ok, anyway the first suborbital attempt did go pear shaped, well according to this.
