Russian space officials have claimed that cosmic radiation was to blame for the demise of Phobos-Grunt.

Associated Press said:

Space radiation led the onboard computer system to experience memory problems after launch, the Roscosmos chief said. Staff at the rocket-building plant would be punished, he said, adding that "they should have taken into consideration the effect of outer space".

Sounds like excuses for a failed school project (are we really supposed to believe this?), good luck building a manned base on the moon comrades.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

They forgot to shield against cosmic radiation?  What kind of nonsense is that?
I really thought they had it together better than this.  I fear for the safety of our astronauts riding with them.
