Team members of the Landing and Descent Deceleration Earth Recovery System (LaDDERS) Advanced Development Project celebrated their Center Team Award Thursday, March 25, at the Track Lab in Building 1262. In 2006, the LaDDERS team formed to lead the development of the Orion landing system. In three years, the team conducted 117 landing impact tests and delivered 80 technical reports. The LaDDERS team accepted the award for technical excellence last month. ''This team has really cranked out a lot...

To build confidence in a design tool that could be used to analyze how the structural design of a spacecraft would be impacted during a water-landing scenario, engineers have been performing a series of subscale water drop tests at NASA Langley's Elemental Water Impact facility. Here, engineers prepare to drop a 20-inch (50.8 cm) hemisphere from five feet (1.5 m) into a four-foot (1.2 m) deep pool. This testing is part of a building block approach that will help engineers generate test data...
