    Comments: For the second time in six months, a commercial launch of the Russian Proton rocket ended in failure early Saturday after an undetermined problem struck the booster's upper stage, leaving the mission's DISH Network broadcasting payload in a useless orbit. The failure occurred near the end of the 34-minute-long second burn of the launcher's Breeze M upper stage, which features a single engine powered by explosive hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide propellants. The Proton was carrying AMC 14, a communications satellite owned by SES AMERICOM, a New Jersey-based satellite operator, destined to beam direct-to-home television programming for DISH Network. ILS officials provided no further details on the nature of the failure, but Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, reported the Breeze M engine shut down two minutes and 13 seconds earlier than planned.
