NASA is preparing to test foldable glider drones that could conduct aerial surveillance for possible landing locations on Mars. Since drones are relatively inexpensive to build, launch and are expendable, the space agency is determined to launch them, which could be the first man-made object to take flight in the skies of Mars. Under the new program and currently under construction is the Prandtl-m (Preliminary Research Aerodynamic Design to Land on Mars), a prototype of an aircraft that could accompany the Mars 2020 rover mission carried as ballast with another lander if testing is successful.
