two sides to every story?,
This review is from: My Life on Mars: (The Beagle 2 Diaries) (Hardcover)
I admire Prof. Pillinger; I admire all he's done, I like hearing him speak.
I was looking forward to reading the Diaries, but came away slightly dissapointed. The acronyms are endless - and even though there is an acronym glossary, I just got lost. But rather than a focus on Beagle 2, the book is a catalogue of who screwed the project over, and to what degree....he really seems to put everyone's back up, and I mean EVERYONE.
So a bit more about the science, and bit less score settling would have made it a 4-star for me.
And here's hoping that whichever Martian sponsored by the ESA is sitting on Beagle, preventing it transmitting, SHIFTS ITSELF, eh?
I know Prof. Pillinger is battling MS - I wish him well. He is certainly not one of life's quitters. 2/3 of Mars missions fail - so anyone apportioning blame is wrong.
