Something which I haven't gotten around to blogging yet is the imminent arrival of the British space probe, Beagle 2, at Mars. The probe, which is being transported by the Mars Express spacecraft, is due to touch down on Christmas Day. It has been sent with the express purpose of searching for signs of life. If the mission is succesful it will not only represent a great scientific advance but a considerable riposte to the heavily funded NASA programme.

BBC has an update.
