Colin Pillinger – “My Life on Mars (The Beagle-2 Diaries)”

Book cover: My Life on Mars

Wednesday 20th October 2010

Prof. Colin Pillinger has recently released his new book “My Life on Mars (The Beagle-2 Diaries)” documenting the story of Beagle-2. The boook is published by the British Interplanetary Society and available from most good book shops for about £20.

Colin visited Papworth to speak to the Club about the Beagle-2 project back in March 2001. The BBC Science Correspondent, Jonathan Amos, posted a review of the book and a discussion of the Beagle-2 legacy in his “Spaceman” blog. The blog includes footage of a rocket launch in which a copy of the book was blasted into the sky “high above Cambridgeshire”. It maybe a tenuous link, but I did wonder if the rocket was launched at an EARS event, in the fields between Papworth and Elsworth?
