Russia's space agency says it has again failed to restore communications with an orbiting radio telescope but remains hopeful it will regain control of the satellite soon.

The Spektr-R space telescope is now a mere ghost. Russia's only space telescope recently stopped responding to commands issued from the ground.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - A representative of Russian space agency Roscosmos told Sputnik on Sunday that an attempt to establish contact with Russia's only space telescope Spektr-R has failed.

Russia's space agency says another attempt by its specialists to establish contact with an orbiting radio telescope has failed.

The effort to establish contact with Spektr-R will continue after 7 p.m. on Monday
