Colin Pillinger

Sad to hear about the death of Colin Pillinger today. A great guy with tons of enthusiasm!

He took a big risk with Beagle 2 sending it to Mars, but he had the drive to take risks and explore. Imagine what would have happened if the signal arrived at Earth and Beagle 2 began to function...well done Colin, it was worth a try!

I met Colin back in the 1980's at Summer School when I was studying with the Open University. I remember watching his programmes on BBC 2 at 6,00am in the morning when I was doing my degree. A great guy!
