KMi's long experience of webcasting technology was put to the test on the morning of Thursday 19th December as invited press and guests were given a final view of the Beagle II Mars lander before it was closed and sent off to its launch site. Those unable to attend the event at Walton Hall campus were able to view remotely via KMi's Stadium streaming media system.
