Very sad indeed, but due to the name of the spacecraft,I can't help
thinking of an old campfire song (He jumped from 40000 feet), which
is sung to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. I really
shouldn't, and do feel for the folks who worked on all the spacecraft
on that launch, but:

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
And she ain't gonna fly no more.

(Google the words of the 40k version, and you'll prolly see why I
made the link)

Yes, I know, bad taste, call it almost gallows humour
