Tonight’s scan for a signal from Beagle 2 by the 250 ft (76 m) Lovell
Telescope at Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire, UK, was unsuccessful.

The next communication opportunity with the Mars Odyssey orbiter will
take place at about 06.15 GMT this morning. The results of this session
will be announced at a press briefing in the Beagle 2 Media Centre at

During this press briefing, Professor Colin Pillinger, Beagle 2 lead
scientist, will be joined by Professor David Southwood, director of
science for the European Space Agency, and Professor Alan Wells from the
University of Leicester Space Research Centre.
