3 weeks ago

Russian military satellite Cosmos 2525 went out of orbit and burned up in the atmosphere. The remains of the satellite fell into the Pacific Ocean.

No reasons for the crash were reported. Russian Defense Ministry did not comment on the accident either.

“Cosmos 2525” was launched in March 2018. After the launch, the spacecraft was placed in its target orbit and taken over by the ground assets of the Space Forces of the Russian Air Force. Under the common name of Cosmos, the USSR and later Russia launched communications satellites, as well as scientific and military satellites and prototype spacecraft.

The Americans were the first to report the Russian accident. TASS reported the incident, citing a North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) source.
