Supersonic Decelerator Project 'On Track' for Success
Huntsville AL (SPX) Nov 20, 2012
NASA has completed three key milestones in its development of new atmospheric deceleration technologies to support exploration missions across the solar system. The Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator project, which is developing technologies to use atmospheric drag to dramatically slow a vehicle as it penetrates the skies over worlds beyond our own, completed three successful rocket sled tests of the "SIAD-R," a Supersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator, the first of three innovative decelerat ... read more
