ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a space probe called "Beagle 2 Mars" which will use more parachutes and a different airbag system in an attempt to land successfully on Mars. Details of the proposed second mission, which would be launched in October 2007 and arrive on Mars in the summer of 2008, were revealed last week at a conference examining the aftermath of Beagle 2's failed Christmas day landing. The project, led by professor Colin Pillinger, has not yet attracted any private or government financial support.
