Title: Last notes on beagle...
Post by: blobrana on March 08, 2004, 04:07:44 PM

Photographic evidence  at the beagle enquiry  has shown four bright spots, dubbed the "string of pearls", on the surface of the planet.

(Beagle 2 was targeted to land in a large lowland basin called Isidis Planitia at 0254 GMT on 25 December.)

Unfortunately, it seems as if the Beagle 2 lander could have crashed into Mars because the atmosphere on the planet was less dense than expected and due to the dust storm activity on the planet (which acted to warm the atmosphere, at the time ) (

This `less dense atmosphere` was also noticed by the nasa probes as well.
