Entirely academic.... without UHF comms, the definition of 'functional' isn't really of merit.

Yes, as I said, it doesn't really matter with no way to communicate with it. But do you know if there is anything wrong with my logic? For example, the heaters might not even have been turned on depending on how the thermal control on Beagle 2 was set up. I haven't found anything that is specific enough to tell.

Actually while viewing a presentation about Rosetta I happened about a mention by Ian Wright where he says that it is being looked into if the mission could be "resurrected". Who knows what he means by that though, maybe he's hoping that a rover with a suitable arm lands nearby to give it a helping hand? Here's a link either way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=playe...DI4bD7ThA#t=300

I have managed to find the Beagle 2 Lander in Google Earth. It took half an hour because the lander was... smaller than I expected, no wonder it took so long to find it!

Thank you very much 'mpc' for this very nice info.
The review history of the paper is worth reading too... especially Al McEwen's "Appendix A".
