Hi Terry!

Last night I did a quick search for the photo of Beagle 2 that
shows the unidentified object referred to in the article above
that was taken shortly after it separated from the Mars Express
mothership.

Could this UFO be the brightest of several star-like objects
seen in the picture found at the Beagle 2 web site below?

It is important to learn why Beagle 2 failed to make contact
with Earth after it landed (crashed?) on Mars, especially to
York University space scientist, Prof. Brendan Quine. His
private company has designed 'Northern Light', an improved
version of the Beagle 2 lander that also includes a small rover
named 'Beaver'. He hopes that his Mars landing mission will be
funded by the Canadian Space Agency or other interested group
that has about $50 to $150 million to spare.

The 'Northern Light' Mars landing mission is separate to the
work other space scientists here at York University are involved
in with 'Pheonix', a NASA Mars lander with Canadian
participation that is the next spaceprobe scheduled to land on
the surface of the Red Planet and to search for ET life.
