Phobos was a lone object, but Mars had captured it - transcribing... Studying Phobos is important for science...

Phobos may have been created by the primordial matter that could have formed the other planets... (another interesting conversation)

Narrator: During cruise batteries will be constantly illuminated by the sun, there will be three TCMs...

EDIT (Narrator) : YH-1 will separate in Mars orbit, the Chinese microsatellite will work together with Phobos-Grunt, radio-probing the atmosphere
