Abstract

On 25 December 2003, the British-built Beagle 2 probe will land on the surface of Mars to carry out one of the most potentially important pieces of analytical science ever conceived: to search for evidence of extra terrestrial life. Dr Ian Wright of the Open University talks us through the difficulties of performing measurements in such a harsh environment.
