About the category "Satellite launch failures" As a 10 yrs contributor to the french Wikipedia (see ), I recently happened to google "Satellite launch failures" and found this nice category: (Doesn't exist in French.)

- As a former engineer (now retired) active in the "space saga" of the last century... I could immediately see that there are many items missing in this sad list... See for instance: or

- I understand that I should not add the names of Firewheel , MARECS-B, or Sirio-2 on the page: I should rather create 3 new articles and then insert those new pages... But... it is "too much" for a "modestly experienced" WP French contributor... like me !

So Good Luck.... in trying to find the "good guys" who could collect and handle this... "bottle in the sea", in order to complete the job !
