Sailors recover the test vehicle for NASA's Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator.

KAUAI, Hawaii (June 8, 2015) Sailors assigned to the Explosive Ordnance Detachment of Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit (MDSU) 1 recover the test vehicle for NASA's Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) off the coast of the U.S. Navy's Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii. NASA's LDSD project is designed to investigate and test breakthrough technologies for landing future robotic and human Mars missions, and safely returning large payloads to Earth.
