  1. UK Mars Probe Discovered 11 Years Later

    The Beagle 2 had landed. A British space probe tasked with searching for signs of life on the Red Planet disappeared during a landing attempt on Christmas 2003. The mission was considered a bust — until now. NASA photos appear to show the Beagle intact. The communication apparatus apparently failed, but otherwise things went as planned. Scientists speculate that the probe may even have been able to take photos. Now all they need is an astronaut with a USB drive to show up.
