European Ice Explorer lost

Radar tracking stations are searching for Europe's missing Cryosat spacecraft, amid concerns it has broken up over the ocean.
The European Space Agency probe lifted off at 1902 local time (1602 BST) from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia.
Russian space officials said the flight broke up and crashed into the sea, but Esa has not yet confirmed it.
