Canada's first all-weather observing satellite feared lost

Canada's Radarsat 1 satellite stopped communicating with Earth in late March, and officials fear the country's oldest Earth observation satellite may be lost for good, the Canadian Space Agency announced Tuesday.

Controllers last heard from the spacecraft March 29, when engineers noticed Radarsat 1 was in safe mode, a semi-dormant state in which the spacecraft conserves energy, according to Michel Doyon, flight operations manager at the Canadian Space Agency.
