Beagle 2

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023

Twenty years after it launched, we celebrate the legacy of Beagle 2, the pioneering British Mars lander.

Come and meet some of the scientists behind the experiment to detect life on Mars.
Take the Whisky Test and see if you can correctly identify different types of Scotch whisky by sniffing/tasting – are you better than a mass spectrometer?
