    RIP Colin Pillinger

    British planetary scientist and the man behind the Beagle Mars Lander, which despite the failure seemed to inspire peoples imagination. He had imagination and huge tenacity - a sad loss for British Science.

    Rest in Peace.

    Never will the world see the likes of his glorious sideburns again

    A proper British inventor, enthusiastic and boyish and a delight any time he was on TV.
