Zenit Re-entry Failures

This table lists the handful of occasions where a Zenit satellite failed to re-enter as planned.

Additionally, some Zenit cabins re-entered successfully but then damage occurred as a result of ballistic problems, parachute problems or particularly awkward landings. Because information on such events is usually secret, they are not included here. Some entries in the main tables contain notes where a post re-entry problem was subsequently flagged up.
