specifically - http://sci.esa.int/science-e/www/object/do...fobjectid=36781 (4ish meg PDF)

It's an 'interesting' design - which would win astonishing ammounts of cool points for being sexy - cameras on the lander AND the rover on masts smile.gif

Cant help but think that if that design is to go further - Pillinger should hand it off to an experience mission management team ( Huygens? ) and settle as a PI or Co-PI for it.

No airbags on top ? ohmy.gif What if a Yogi-ish kind of rock (or Burn Cliffs) appears and the whole probe tips over on impact ?

This design is flat out insanity. Pillinger thinks the proper response to the review board is to make two Super Beagles with rovers???

Digging up this old thread because...

is there any news on the project B2-Evolution? I haven't heard from Colin Pilinger and his new project since the end of 2004.
