Satellite exploded in space

 
Satellite exploded in space
The Japanese aerospace control has lost contact with its latest research satellite. Americans say they still see it in space, but it is surrounded by parts after the explosion.

The satellite would give scientists unique information about astronomical sources that emit X-rays. It could tell us a little more about how the universe is structured.

Now it seems that the dream has literally gone up in "air".

The satellite Hitomi was launched in February and was under preparation for astronomical observations when the Japanese lost contact with it Saturday morning.

- We are not able to determine what has happened to it, or what condition it is in now, reports the Japanese space agency JAXA.

Some hours later came a cryptic Twitter message from the US space surveillance command.

The first part of the message is about a Russian proton rocket that was sent up in 2008, but the second part of the message seems to slam at least one nail the coffin of the satellite Hitomi.

Near the satellite the Americans see five sections that should not have been there. Parts that look like they are coming from the satellite.
