The ESA has announced that its Beagle 2 lander mission will be under complete scrutiny from the public. Operated from the National Space Centre in Leicester, Great Britain, visitors will be able to watch scientists work as they search for signs of life on Mars. Professor Alan Wells, director of space research at the center, said, "NASA has never done this. We are breaking new ground in the public presentation of space science."

The cost to visit the centre is 8.95 for adult regular admission, and 6.95 for children.
