Bridget turns heads

| No Comments
bridget_KSC.jpgAttendees at the 2009 National Astronomy Meeting were met with an 'otherworldly sight' whilst eating their lunch. The ESA Exomars engineering model, dubbed 'Bridget', was spotted leaving the EADS-Astrium tent as it tried to escape over the hill. This image was fortuitously snapped by Astronomy Now's Assistant Editor before the six-wheeled rover could get away. In reality, the craft was being steered by employees of the Stevenage-based EADS-Astrium. Bridget certainly turned everyone's heads.
