The Beagle 2 Mars probe that went missing 11 years ago may have been found.The UK Space Agency stated that they would provide information about what happened to the craft which tried to land on the red planet.However, experts with access to pictures from space claimed that they have seen images which suggested the Beagle 2 probe has been spotted.

A senior space scientist said NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) showed an object roughly the right shape and in the correct place to be the craft.

The Beagle 2 probe was created by a group of British academics and the project was lead by the late Professor Colin Pillinger. It was initially transported with the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter and was designed to search for signs of past or present life in Mars.



It was successfully released from the orbiter on December 19 2003 but the expected signal confirming touch down on Christmas Day was never received.
