NASA's test vehicle for a new way to land heavier payloads on Mars, the
Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) - see
http://www.whatsupthespaceplace.com/2014/06/holy-x-files-nasa-has-flying-saucer.html 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.
NASA will hold a live telecon on the test Sunday, June 29 at 1 p.m.EDT.
