Reports in the Russian Novosti Kosmonavtiki website state that the Russian Federal Space Agency is willing to go ahead with Phobos-Grunt 2 after the failure of the original Phobos-Grunt spacecraft in November 2011. The mission will be included in future plans but no date for the launch has yet been set. The original mission was intended to fly to the Martian Moon Phobos, collect some soil samples and return them to Earth.
