Britain needs its own space agency.

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

Planetary scientist Colin Pillinger said” Britain needs its own space agency.

 

Sadly on the 7th May 2014 the Open University professor Colin Pillinger passed away, the Beagle 2 Mars Lander mission was a success. His perseverance grit and determination to succeed against all the odds is typical of the few scientists who cannot be dissuaded by autocracy. He is and always will be remembered fondly for his amazing smile under adversity and the grin when he talked about the Mars Lander Beagle 2 project, a dedication and smile you never forget.
