OPEN UNIVERSITY'S BEAGLE 2 PROJECT

  • Session: 2003-04
  • Date tabled: 15.12.2003
  • Primary sponsor: White, Brian
  • Sponsors:

    That this House congratulates the research team at The Open University led by Professor Colin Pillinger for their outstanding work on the Beagle 2 project which is scheduled to touch down on Mars on Christmas Day; notes that because this work was conducted in an open access institution, the research underpinning this project will bring benefit to far more students from a wider spectrum of backgrounds and in far quicker time than if it was conducted in a traditional selective-entry university; and calls on the Government to ensure that the special nature of The Open University and the unique access to excellence it provides should be recognised when considering research funding allocation in the future.
