The high-altitude balloon carrying the LDSD project

High-altitude balloon(Helium Balloon) launch occurred in Hawaiian island facility at 8.45 a.m.Their tested balloon and vehicle were about 1,20,000 feet over the Pacific Ocean at the time of the drop and it splashed down in the ocean at 11.35 a.m.

Mark alder is a project manager for LDSD at NASA's jet Propulsion Laboratory located in Pasadena, California. “The test vehicle worked good. After the result we met all of our flight objectives, have recovered all the the vehicles hardware and data recorders for future flights”.

He said "Our vehicle flew so well, by adding some extra credit points with the Supersonic inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator[SIAD]". SIAD is a large, first deceleration technology is deployed during the flight and second one is an enormous parachute, and the tam analyzing data on the parachute due to the test vehicle did not deploy as expected.

Dorothy Rasco given some text about NASA Space Technology Mission Directorate is " This entire effort was just fantastic work by the whole team and is a proud."
