View Full Version : Discussion: Eighth Attempt to Reach Beagle 2 ...

2004-Jan-02, 09:21 PM
SUMMARY: The search for Beagle 2 continues. Operators announced on December 31 that the British lander had failed to report in for the eighth time. At this point, the lander will have switched to a new mode where it tries to communicate twice a day. Although unlikely, it's possible that Beagle 2's onboard timer was reset during the landing, which would mean it was trying to communicate out of sync with Mars Odyssey and Earth-based radio telescopes. Mars Express will start searching on January 5, which operators believe will bring their best chances of finding it.
