The only thing Beagle wanted was to fulfill his mission’s purpose. But all that was dashed on the landing.
Beagle had been excited, though the Humans would never know or conceive that a robot could be excited. It started as a little ghost in it’s programming that came when Beagle learned it would be going to Mars. The little ghost within scoured the web, learning everything that it could about Mars from what it could find.
Most things it found talked of the Mars Curse, but Beagle just put that on back log since it seemed the programmers and the scientist were unconcerned by this.
All Beagle had to do was get some core dirt samples and then be retrieved for study, as well as let the mole out to gather more dirt samples.
But something went wrong, Beagle’s chutes opened to early. Someone had miscalculated somewhere, and Beagle plummeted uncontrollably towards the red planets surface, the ghost in the shell knew fear. The last things that the ghost knew, was that it had bounced and ended up entangled in the chute before all went black forever. A dream never fulfilled.
