Mars Rover's Landing Radar Tested in Jet Fighter | NASA JPL F/A-18 Hornet MSL Curiosity

4y ago


Visit my website at - from 2006 to 2011, engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory conducted a series of aerial tests on the landing radar for NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars. Using a NASA F/A-18 Hornet and a Eurocopter AS350 helicopter, they tested the radar at different altitudes and velocities over the Southern California desert. Please rate and comment, thanks!
