In May 2009 Beanie and Biggles signed up for a trip to Mars on the NASA roving laboratory called “Curiosity”. The trip was two and a half years away and our intrepid Beagles were quite blase about the whole thing.
As the day of departure approached they started to think about it some more and became more than a little nervous. They’d heard it’s very dark in space and weren’t sure they’d like that very much. So, we decided to switch off the lights and give them a little taste of how it might feel.
