Why spoil it by reading the story?

Some headlines are so good that you almost hate to read on, but all right:
 A Russian satellite containing geckos, fruit flies and mushrooms could plummet to earth if control is not regained, according to reports.

The engine of the Foton-M4 satellite, with several experiments on board, has stopped responding to ground control.

All other systems are intact, the Progress space centre stated, including "one-way" transmission of information.

The five geckos are in space for a study of the effect of weightlessness on their sex lives and development.

Thanks, BBC!
