New Setback for Beagle 2


The Mars Express is in the wrong orbit to establish contact with the Beagle 2, but the scientists still haven't given up hope. Professor Colin Pillinger, Beagle 2's lead scientist, hopes to make contact on Wednesday.

Pillinger said there would be "a real pull-out attempt on January 7 to get in touch with our spacecraft. This is the best chance we have. If our best chance doesn't work we really have to start believing that time is running out."

He also congratulated the Americans success with the Rover: "It goes without saying that we congratulate them and wish them every luck. That isn't to say we have in any shape or form given up on Beagle 2."
