EDIT: Moved these posts from the Feb 14 HiRISE Release thread to here to collect all Beagle 2 search related stuff in one place.

I'm downloading them now too -- guess I can't blog about them until I've examined them very carefully!

For a bit of history on the search,
Here's a blog entry I wrote about this spot a while ago
Here's the MOC team's take on that spot
And here's the BBC page with the Beagle 2 team's take on it

EDIT: and here's my updated blog entry with links to the Beagle 2 landing ellipse images split up into 40-MB chunks.

After The BA mentioned Emily's blog entry about this HiRISE image - Andrew commented on a feature that I've pulled out of PSP_002347_1915_RED_r2c3.png - Alex will be calling it house rock before too long although to be fair - that segment off to the left does look like the orange-segment sort of shape one would expect from the airbags....BUT....if the vehicle was healthy enough to fire the pyyros to drop away from the airbags - one would expect a working vehicle on the surface.

The 'killer find' still has to be either the 10m diameter parachute or a fresh crater + debris.
