Xombie 750m Mars EDL Divert Trajectory

On their blog, Masten discusses the latest Xombie flight. And, of course, there are videos. Xombie went to new heights, moved at faster speeds, and translated further. "As far as we know, the 750 meter translation flight represents the longest terrestrial translation flight ever undertaken by a rocket powered vertical takeoff, vertical landing craft."

Masten, Armadillo, Morheus, Mighty Eagle...soon I may have to quit posting about every flight. But not now!
