Time and money pressures, along with management lapses, proved a fatal combination for the Beagle 2 spaceprobe that aimed to land on Mars, an official inquiry has concluded.
I was a big fan of the beagle 2 probe from the start. There was something about it I found endearing. It had all the classic ingredients, ambitious, eccentric professor, science dream turning into reality.
The enthuasim of the people involved in the project was infectious.
I look forward to seeing a beagle 3.
