I can’t wait to find out if the Beagle 2 probe lands and communicates from Mars. Considering the risky steps it needs to take to land you would have to say the chances are slim.
But it captures the imagination in a similar way to the first Shuttle launch. I remember watching the launch when I was in primary school. Superb. Good luck Beagle.
One thought on “Will Beagle Succeed?”
The fact that it has been done almost entirely in Britain by British Engineers is what pleases me most. We are far too modest when it comes to Engineering (Apart from me, I am a genius after all).
