Video: NASA's Morpheus landing prototype has first free flight

NASA conducted the first free flight of a Morpheus prototype lander on December 10 at Kennedy Space Center’s Shuttle Landing Facility. Project Morpheus integrates NASA’s automated landing and hazard avoidance technology (ALHAT) with an engine that runs on liquid oxygen and methane, or “green” propellants, into a fully operational lander that could deliver cargo to asteroids and other planetary surfaces.
