    Colin Pillinger dies after brain haemorrhage



    Prof Pillinger's family said he died peacefully in hospital


    British space scientist Colin Pillinger, best known for his Beagle 2 Mars mission, has died aged 70, his family have said.


    Prof Pillinger was at his home in Cambridge when he suffered a brain haemorrhage and fell into a deep coma.

    His family said he later died at Addenbrooke's Hospital without regaining consciousness.
    His death was "devastating and unbelievable", they said in a statement.
