Help search for the lost Beagle on Mars
This is the most recent of a series of images from the UA's HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, taken today within the expected landing ellipse of the Beagle 2 lander, lost in late 2003 during descent onto the Martian surface. [photo credit NASA/JPL/University of Arizona]
The folks at Scientific Frontline are urging readers to "take the time to view the entire image at full resolution to search for any unusual small features that might have resulted from the landing attempt. For some helpful tips on what to look for, check this Web site."
