Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

The missing Beagle
It's a thing with Beagles. My neighbor had one and this Beagle was always where it was not supposed to be and did things noone wanted her to do.
Seems to be the same with the Beagle on Mars right now. It just doesn't answer and noone knows where it is.
Maybe it landed but its antennae just show into the wrong direction (down to Mars surface or so).
Maybe it landed but got smashed because of a hard landing.
Maybe it landed but is simply doesn't work because of the landing shock.
Maybe it was shoot off by some hidden Marsians when it try to land.
Maybe it missed Mars and flies to another planet?
Maybe it missed Mars and circles around it?
Maybe it came into a storm or fire.
And a good Science Fiction Writer could come up with some billions more and better ideas what all could have happened to Beagle. Fact is, it doesn't answer and noone knows where it is and we can't just hop out and have a look.
The Ship around is already a great step and even without Beagle this mission won't be a total loss because we'll find out more about Mars in any way.
