NASA's Flying Saucer Flew Today

Hey Space Placers!

NASA's test vehicle for a new way to land heavier payloads on Mars, the
Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) - see for background - flew today, June 28.

The test was a success in many ways but the parachute did not fully deploy as planned.  The test vehicle landed in the Pacific Ocean.
