Beagles 3 & 4 due for 2007 Launch!

  1. What do you do when you lose a Lander?
    Simple, launch another TWO! Huh?????????????
    And why on Earth would anyone sponsor Beagle’s 3 and 4?

    “Q: A few weeks ago Michael Malin released an image taken by his Mars Orbital Camera on board Mars Global Surveyor that might show Beagle 2 -- what are your thoughts about that?”
    Where has this image gone?

  3. Beagle was sent to look for signs of life, or life itself.
    It's a goal worth shooting for....again.....and again.....until we get it right.
     
  4. yeah, i guess its time for the english to actually do something major, or even minor space wise, the press over here makes fun of guy alot but i think these 2 will have some bugs ironed out of them, as in actually working this time........
