    UFO Beagle 2 found on Mars



    Beagle 2 Found 'Partially Deployed' On Mars

    A British spacecraft which disappeared as it approached Mars in search of alien life has been spotted on the planet's surface.

    The Beagle 2 was presumed to have been destroyed because it had not been seen or heard from since December 2003.

    But UK Space Agency chief executive David Parker has confirmed that photos taken by a Nasa orbiter spacecraft show it successfully landed 12 years ago.

    He said: "The history of space exploration is marked by both success and failure. This finding makes the case that Beagle 2 was more of a success than we previously knew and undoubtedly an important step in Europe's continuing exploration of Mars.

    "What we can say with some confidence today is that Beagle 2 is no longer lost and furthermore it seems we are not looking at a crash site.

    "We have good evidence of Beagle 2 resting on the surface of Mars."

    The images taken from 185 miles above Mars in 2013 and again last year show that the small lander touched down successfully close to its intended landing site.

    How can it be a success when it can't communicate with Earth?

    It'll have shed loads of data stored on it if its intact. We just need someone to go and get it with whatever late 1990's early 2000's tech it had on it! USB?

    We also know that the method of delivery was effective - the entry and landing worked as planned. The issue is with the deployment of the solar panels on the surface.

    Colin Pillinger would have been chuffed to know that Beagle 2 had landed and not crashed.

    Would be nice if this is not the end of the story...
