[Author's note: I did not pay Oliver to call me "excellent."]

I have not yet written up part 2 on the Beagle report, but a new article in this week's Aviation Week concerning ESA's Mars plans is prompting me to do so (and providing a convenient hook for the story).

Unfortunately, my boss wants me to actually work for my salary, my girlfriend doesn't like it when I ignore her to spend the entire weekend in the office writing stuff that is read by literally dozens of people worldwide, the dog expects to be walked, etc. So I don't know if I'm going to get to it this weekend or next.

Doubtless to his girlfriend's displeasure Dwayne has now delivered the second part of his piece: link in the text above.


Esa have announced some sort of progress towards a rover type mars lander mission, landing in 2013. http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEMOBUV797E_index_0.html

It's not very clear to me what this means exactly as it seems to be only a recommendation.

Anyone have any more info?
