A Russian Meridian communications satellite crashed in Siberia shortly after liftoff Dec. 23, and officials said it appeared to be the result of a Soyuz rocket failure, the official RIA Novosti news agency reported.
“Early information suggests that the Soyuz-2 suffered a malfunction during the third stage and the satellite came down in Siberia,” near the city of Tobolsk, a Defense Ministry official said.
The accident is the latest in a string of problems for the Russian space program, including the loss of three Glonass-M navigation satellites in December 2011, the August failure of a Soyuz-U rocket carrying a Progress capsule filled with international space station supplies and the failed November launch of the Phobos-Grunt Mars probe.

The Outer Space Treaty was considered by the Legal Subcommittee in 1966 and agreement was reached in the General Assembly in the same year ( resolution 2222 (XXI).
The Treaty was largely based on the Declaration of Legal Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, which had been adopted by the General Assembly in its resolution 1962 (XVIII) in 1963, but added a few new provisions.
The Treaty was opened for signature by the three depository Governments (the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States of America) in January 1967, and it entered into force in October 1967. The Outer Space Treaty provides the basic framework on international space law, including the following principles:
•the exploration and use of outer space shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries and shall be the province of all mankind;
•outer space shall be free for exploration and use by all States;
•outer space is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means;
•States shall not place nuclear weapons or other weapons of mass destruction in orbit or on celestial bodies or station them in outer space in any other manner;
•the Moon and other celestial bodies shall be used exclusively for peaceful purposes;
•astronauts shall be regarded as the envoys of mankind;
•States shall be responsible for national space activities whether carried out by governmental or non-governmental entities;
•States shall be liable for damage caused by their space objects; and
•States shall avoid harmful contamination of space and celestial bodies.

Stumbled across this video which claims to show a UFO mothership in Mexico and a portal in Russia.
Although a wild assumption imo, they do seem like strange anomalies none the less, thought they were worthy of posting for some of our more knowledged members to look at..
For those who cannot watch video. The first part shows an orange light in the sky, which seems to 'break up' and changes to a smaller green light.. It looks as though there is some sort of 'debris' surrounding it.. The text on the video claims it is a mothership "morphing" into smaller ships..
The second part of the video shows a blue sky in Russia and what looks like a circle shaped 'cloud' or 'smoke' travelling across the sky with a bright light in the centre.
The text on the video claims this is a portal..
WARNING: contains dramatic music...
are you for ************** real
its just a white dot in the sky with no point of reference at all....
please think before making sensational threads
