The Martian Enterprise

From The Edge of England's Sword I find an amusing little piece on the latest Martian probe malfunction. As the author says, "Zut alors!"

On the subject of the Martian adventure, I am able to find remarkably little in either print or the "www" that tells me what is happening or shares any of the many pictures they must have taken. Could this be the work of the funny little character I found peering into the lens of a supposed camera on an equally supposed Martian landscape a little while back? (Sorry, I seem to have lost both the link and the title of the site - but I think I found it through Ozguru!)

Beagle 2 is obviously dead and gone, but the two Rovers are apparently doing well. So where are the pictures, where are the results and the reports? Even CNN isn't saying anything, so what is the state of play? Anyone?

The two photos were indeed linked from my site. The originals can be found here and here (from Utterly Boring).
