NASA Inflatable Flying Saucer Passes Mars Heat Shield Reentry Test

NASA is about to land even bigger vehicles on Mars.

After launching aboard the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket’s final liftoff from the West Coast on Wednesday (November 10), an inflatable heat shield technology demonstrator called LOFTID appeared to make a seamless journey to space and back. If so, this mission marks a key moment in NASA’s long journey to eventually bring humans to Mars.
