A specially processed NASA Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) image taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC). The Beagle scientists believe that out of the many thousands of craters and hundreds of square kilometres of Beagle 2’s landing ellipse, no other candidate site has come close to providing such compelling evidence of Beagle’s landing.
Impact ejecta can be seen similar to the one produced by MER-A’s front shield in the Bonneville crater and a cluster of symmetrically arranged objects that match a successful gas bag segment separation, dropping the lander to the ground.
