Video: NASA lander lights up sky in nighttime test flight


NASA’s rocket-powered planetary lander prototype, the Morpheus, had its first nighttime test flight on May 28 at Kennedy Space Centre, Florida. The flame from the Morpheus’s propulsion system was a spectacular sight in the darkness, lighting up the sky before the craft came to rest in a cloud of fiery dust. Credit: YouTube/NASA Kennedy
