One of Langley Research Center's capabilities is Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL). Center personnel have supported the EDL portions of planetary science missions, including the Mars Phoenix Lander, the Mars Science Laboratory, and the future OSIRIS-REx cometary sample return. HIAD is one of the technology development projects that will enable the landing of larger payloads on the Martian surface. Watch the linked video cast to learn more.
