Good Grief! (A highly appropriate expression, I feel !)
When you put "farewell" I thought they'd lost their small dog.

The mission manager for Beagle 2 is Dr. Mark Sims of the University of
Leicester

I met Dr. Sims (next seat) on a transatlantic flight this September -
best 9 hour plan flight that I have ever had !

It pays to pay attention

I happened to be standing near some of the investigators for the Hubble
Telescope when it launched, but I hadn't done my homework. We chatted about
lots of *other* things, but it wasn't until I got home and saw the news
where the folks were identified. The t-shirt with "high-speed photometer"
wasn't enough of a clue :P

Sure was pretty, though. The launch, not the goofy-looking guy with the
t-shirt.

shot a flying saucer instead.

That is exactly what I thought - the dead giveaway was 30 minutes into the
flight the
pulled out his laptop - and brought up notes from the space conference in
New Mexico
he had just attended (and changed planes in Chicago).

Of course, I was reading Tom Clancy's latest novel, "The Teeth of the
Tiger" - which I put down.

An interesting way to spend Christmas ... at Beagle 2 Mission Control
(finding out if you received presents or a lump of coal)

Hopefully this Beagle will safely reach terra firma (or should I say
ares firma?) after his dance with the Red Baron.

I'm be eagerly awaiting Christmas morning.
