Damn!

An experimental solar-driven spacecraft went missing after its launch from a Russian submarine on Tuesday, but backers of the privately funded mission hoped it would be found in an unplanned orbit rather than floating in the sea off Russia.

Cosmos 1, the world's first solar-sail spacecraft, blasted off in a converted Russian ballistic missile from the Barents Sea at the start of a mission meant to show a group of space enthusiasts could kick-start a race to the stars on a shoestring budget of $4 million.

Backers at the Planetary Society in Pasadena believe the disc-shaped craft either veered off course during its rocket-propelled trip into orbit or failed to separate from the Russian-made Volna rocket that launched it into space.

It will take a few more launches....But we're on our way.
