NASA Prepares For Mars Missions With Foldable Glider Drones

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.

NASA Curiosity Rover Captures Mars’ Stunning Sunset

The Curiosity rover in Mars has taken spectacular images on the sunset in the red planet. Photographs show blue hues in the horizon. The rover, landed on Mars three years ago. Since then, it continues to send different images back to Earth.

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover recorded this sequence of views of the sun setting at the close of the mission's 956th Martian day, or sol (April 15, 2015), from the rover's location in Gale Crater.
