    MARS EXPRESS A SUCCESS, BUT NO ONE HEARS BEAGLE'S BARK
    ------------------------------------------------------
    In what was obviously a bittersweet Christmas Day for planetary scientists
    around the world, a tiny lander disappeared without a trace while its
    counterpart successfully glided into orbit around the Red Planet, becoming
    the first European spacecraft to take up residence at another world.

    SEARCH FOR BEAGLE LANDER CONTINUES
    ----------------------------------
    A second opportunity to receive communication from the British Beagle 2
    lander failed to detect a signal. Using the 76-meter Jodrell Bank radio
    telescope, scientists hoped to hear a tone from the lander Thursday night
    that would indicate the spacecraft is alive on the surface of Mars. See
    our Mission Status Center for the very latest developments:
