James was also there to speak at the 4th International Barcode of Life Conference, and Lort-Phillips was also pursuing a deal with the publishers of an upcoming Beagle history by Marsden Hordern.

The Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) has captured its first stunning images from a high plateau in northern Chile. The array, unprecedented in size and sophistication, will enable new investigations of the formation of galaxies, stars and planets. HMS Beagle Project director Dr. Ravinder Bhatia, a member of the Science and Chilean Outreach teams, is a System Engineer at ALMA.
HMS Beagle spent over a year (1834-1835) travelling the coastline of Chile. During this time, the crew witnessed the earthquake of 1835 and associated volcanic eruptions, and Charles Darwin undertook several journeys into the Andes.
