Beagle 2 Update 1

The first opportunity to receive a signal has passed without contact. The website says this could simply be due to “the Beagle 2 antenna…not pointing in the direction of Mars Odyssey”. Next communication possibility is between 2200 and 0000 this evening, when the Jodrell Bank Observatory will listen out for the slow morse-code-like signal the craft should emit…It’s going to be a long day!
