Satellite caught in James Bond movie plot

The Cosmos 1 Solar Sail Weblog reads like background material for the plot for an upcoming James Bond movie: Cosmos 1 is something as high concept as a navigable solar sail, launched (the plot calls for nothing less) from a submerged Russian submarine in the Barents Sea in a converted ICBM left over from the cold war arsenal. But Cosmos 1 suddenly vanished over the Kamchatka Peninsula and now nobody knows where the sci-fi spacecraft is.
Sounds to me like a Blofeld-like supervillain is probably responsible.
