The missing Mars lander Beagle 2 has been found on the surface of the planet after more than a decade, scientists announced Friday, solving the mystery of what happened to its doomed mission.
The robot was supposed to make a soft touchdown on Mars on Christmas Day in 2003 but contact was lost.
New images from planet’s surface show that it made a successful touchdown and was partially deployed, the U.K. Space Agency said in a statement.
However, it will not be possible to recover any data from the device.
