Did UFO Bring Down Beagle?

European scientists are examining an image of the Beagle 2 Mars
lander, taken moments after it was spun off from its mother
ship, that also shows an unidentified object.

The mysterious blot on the photograph is being scrutinised as
one of several potential reasons for the failure of the mission
- Europe's first attempt to land a probe on the Red Planet.

Mission controllers told a London meeting that they were also
considering the possibility that Beagle 2 simply crashed onto
the surface of Mars because the atmosphere on the planet was
less dense than expected.

Scientists said they are examining photographs of the landing
site that show four bright spots, dubbed the "string of pearls,"
that might be Beagle 2's remains.

Beagle 2 has not been heard from since it was ejected from the
European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter in mid-December.
The 143 pound probe gave no answering signal to scheduled
attempts to contact it on Christmas Day and has remained
stubbornly silent ever since.
