Us-X-38 Flight Featured July Image

Us-X-38 Flight

This 10 July NASA image shows the X-38 prototype being released from NASA's B-52 mothership over the Edwards Air Force Base range in California's Mojave Desert during the second free-flight test of the X-38 series prototypes. Shortly after the photo was taken, a sequenced deployment of a drogue parachute followed by a large parafoil fabric wing slowed the X-38 to enable it to land safely on Rogers Dry Lake at Edwards. NASA engineers from the Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards, and the Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas, are developing a "lifeboat" for the International Space Station based on X-38 research.
