The Beagle Has Landed (?)

Ok... according to this month's edition of New Scientist, Beagle2 should never have been built. A government investigation into the project (released only under the new Freedom of Information act) says that the project was poorly funded and that a long list of mistakes were made, not only by the British government, but also by ESA. The long and short of it is: The Government needs to learn that good research is founded on proper funding.

One only need look at the amount research lecturers at universities get paid to see how just poorly the Government understand this.
