Beagle 2 Needs Government Support Mars Society

Work continues on Beagle 2, with further efforts to raise more of the final $40 million required to fund the project. Speaking at the Minister’s meeting in Brussels, Lord Sainsbury, the British Minister for Science, remained enthusiastic about the British-led Mars lander vehicle that is being designed to fly on Mars Express in 2003. However, he refused to be drawn out on whether the British government will contribute any finances to the project.
