Beagle 2 and beyond

The Royal Institution of Great Britain will be holding a public lecture on the ill-fated Beagle 2 at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston on Wednesday 13 December 2006 (7.30 - 8.30pm). The event is free although the RI advise you to book ahead. Beagle 2 would have done good science had it survived to the surface of Mars intact back on 25 December 2003. Unfortunately, like many other missions to Mars, it didn't make it. Hopefully Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will spot the wreckage as some point.
