Colin Pillinger has asked the US space agency to put a Beagle "pod" on its Mars Science Laboratory probe for 2009.
Professor Pillinger says he wants to send a second Beagle instrument package to the Red Planet as soon as possible.
"We wrote to Nasa last week, asking them if they'd like to put a Beagle pod on MSL and drop it off in an interesting place," he said.
The Mars Science Laboratory is designed to pave the way for a future mission that would return rocks to Earth.

So he has plans for sending another "sandwhich"/"clam" to there.
He probably prefers the lab to the pub, his own company to that of others. He thinks only Deep Thoughts about Life and Science, and he doesn't bother with mundane matters like money, or haircuts.
