European space satellite breaks up during flight

MOSCOW A European Space Agency satellite that was to have collected data on polar ice broke up in flight after being launched on a converted ballistic missile, a Russian space agency official said yesterday.

Remnants of the satellite crashed into the ocean.

The problem appeared to be with the booster rocket that was supposed to lift the CryoSat unit into orbit.
