NASA Participates in Beagle Mission Recreation

Discovery: Replica Beagle plans expedition to further Darwin's legacy, Financial Times

"An Anglo-Chilean project aims to further the legacy of the great naturalist by building a replica of the wooden Beagle and retracing the voyage it made to circumnavigate the globe, accompanied around Chile's 4,000 mile coast, and those of other parts of Latin America, by a modern, steel-hulled research vessel tentatively named The Adventure, after the Beagle's own sister ship. The aim, the organisers say, is to ignite minds and bring "the adventure of science to life", with participation from schoolchildren in hands-on projects along the ship's route, as well as groundbreaking research by scientists. A collaboration with Nasa, the US space agency, also aims to bring some modernity to this voyage of exploration and discovery."
