Life on Mars 'pregnancy test' successfully launched
Date:9/17/2007

on September 25th. The LMC components will then be taken back to laboratories in the United Kingdom and the United States to analyze the effect of the space flight.

The lead members of the consortium involved in the current mission are Deutsches Zentrum fr Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) (Germany), Cranfield University (UK), Carnegie Institution of Washington (USA) and University of Leicester (UK).

Dr. Andrew Steele from the Carnegie Institution of Washington (USA) and one of the initial experiment proposers said, in the USA we are currently flying related technology and components within the protected environment of the International Space Station (ISS) but this will be the first time that these types of materials will have flown unprotected in space in a manner similar to a flight to Mars.

Dr. Lutz Richter of DLR (Germany) and the principal investigator for the current experiment said, This experiment is the culmination of a number of years of hard work and ground based tests to prove the viability of the LMC technology.

Dr. David Cullen, from Cranfield University (UK) and who leads the scientific input into the current experiment, said, ?this will be our first space experiment to demonstrate our belief that immunoassay technology will have an important future role in space exploration and the search for life elsewhere in the Solar System.

Dr. Mark Sims from the University of Leicester (UK) and who heads the overall LMC project said, this mission will be an important stepping stone in our ultimate goal of putting a LMC experiment on the surface of Mars and using it to search for evidence of Life.
