Space Boffins Richard Hollingham and Sue Nelson discover why we should recover Beagle 2 from the surface of Mars; why we need the Uranus Pathfinder mission; and how exoplanets are putting a twinkle in the eyes of British space scientists. There’s also music from Public Service Broadcasting, with band member J Willgoose explaining how they use space archive footage as an integral part of their unique sound. They're also are joined by Dr Leigh Fletcher from Oxford University and Dr Sheila Kanani from the Royal Astronomical Society with interviews from Professor Ian Wright and Professor Mark Sims.
I'm glad I found this item. Since Beagle 2 probe was located I've been thinking wouldn't it be a challenge to get a probe to recover it from the surface of Mars and return it to Earth. It would be a good exercise prior to sending human beings to the planet. Bob Cains, Fri, 6th Mar 2015
