Sampling Tools for the Planet Mars

A project team, with members from the PolyU and the Open University, UK, has been contracted by the European Space Agency to build the Lander called “Beagle 2” for their 2003 Mars Express: Mission to the planet Mars. The team members from the PolyU are responsible for the design and manufacture of all the sample acquisition tools for the “Beagle 2” to search for life on Mars.

The tools are designed to drill into Mars to acquire earth and rock samples.
