LDSD: We Brake for Mars
Meet NASA’s new supersonic flying saucer, for future Mars landings
By Sebastian Anthony on April 11, 2014 at 8:07 am
NASA’s flying saucer, the Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator
No, humble inhabitants of Hawaii, the US government hasn’t increased the level of psychoactive drugs in your water supply: That really is a flying saucer that just flew past your window at three times the speed of sound. Dubbed the Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator, NASA is hoping that this flying saucer is the secret to eventually landing larger payloads on other planets — such as sending a human exploration party to Mars, along with plenty of supplies. The LDSD is on a pretty aggressive schedule, with seven major tech demos over the next 24 months, and could be used in a real mission to Mars in 2018.
Later this year, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will use a balloon to launch a test vehicle up to an altitude of 120,000 feet (36.5 kilometers) above Hawaii. The test vehicle will then use a rocket to reach supersonic speeds and raise its altitude yet further to 180,000 feet (54.8 kilometers)… and then it will cut its engine and begin to free fall back to earth. As the capsule passes Mach 3.5 (2,600 mph), the LDSD will kick into action, sprouting a Supersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (SIAD) from the craft and filling it with pressurized air. With the SIAD fully inflated, the spacecraft looks awfully like a flying saucer. The SIAD slows the craft down to around Mach 2, whereupon a massive 30-meter-diameter parachute will then be used to bring speeds down to subsonic landing speeds.
NASA is developing two variants of the LDSD [PDF] – one with a 20-foot (6m) SIAD for smaller, robotic extraplanetary landings, and one with a larger 26-foot (8m) SIAD for larger, human payloads. The overall goal of the LDSD is to make it possible for NASA to land larger payloads on the surface of Mars: While the parachute-to-sky-crane technique used by Curiosity was technologically impressive, the sky crane simply isn’t capable of landing payloads over 1.5 metric tons (3,300 lbs). The LDSD will not only allow NASA to land payloads of up to 3 tons on Mars, but it will also increase the number of possible landing zones and improve landing accuracy from a margin of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) to just 3km.
NASA’s LDSD, with huge parachute and different size inflated bitsWhile our mastery of Newtonian physics means it’s fairly trivial to place a place a spacecraft in orbit around any planet in the Solar System, landing on a planet or moon’s surface is still incredibly difficult. Every moon and planet in the Solar System has different atmosphere, gravity, and surface conditions, and thus each mission needs to have a specifically tailored landing procedure. For Mars, the difficulty is that it has too much atmosphere for rapid entry and rocket deceleration (as we did with the Moon landings), but it doesn’t have enough atmosphere to land large objects with only a parachute. (Here on Earth, with our deliciously thick atmosphere, we’ve used parachutes to land masses of up to 72,000 lbs or 32.5 metric tons).
Thus, if we ever want to send a human exploration party to Mars, or eventually colonize it, we need to use a hybrid landing technique — something with a rugged first stage to take the initial brunt of interplanetary deceleration, and then a big ol’ parachute to bring you down to ground-approach speeds. Small rockets would probably be used for final landing maneuvers. Currently, we still use the original parachute design used by the Viking lander program in the ’70s, so it’s definitely time for an upgrade. (Read: US Air Force’s 1950s supersonic flying saucer declassified.)
NASA is scheduled to perform a series of LDSD launches from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai, Hawaii in 2014 and 2015. The LDSD could be ready for missions to Mars as early as 2018, though there aren’t currently any scheduled heavy-payload missions to Mars that could use it. For now, we’ll just have to settle with NASA’s flying saucers whizzing around on Earth.

peaches geldof found dead
Peaches Geldof, Daughter Of Bob Geldof, Dead At 25
Eternal rest, grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace. Amen.

Peaches Geldof, daughter of rock legend Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, has been found dead at age 25.The BBC reports police were called “following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman on Monday afternoon” and the 25-year-old woman was later pronounced dead by the ambulance service. They also reported that Kent Police released a statement saying “At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden.” The police department told TMZ they do not suspect any foul play.

Her father Sir Bob Geldof, the former singer of Boomtown Rats and organizer of Live Aid in 1985, released the following statement:

“We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. We loved her and will cherish her forever. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?  We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.  Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.”

Peaches Geldof was born in 1989, and has been in the public eye since she was 15, when she started writing a column for Elle magazine. She later wrote for the Telegraph and the Guardian, hosted TV shows like ITV2′s OMG! with Peaches Geldof, and spent time as a fashion model.

Peaches was the mother to two sons, both under the age of two, with musician Thomas Cohen, former singer for London post-punk rock band S.C.U.M. Cohen also released a heartbreaking statement: “My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever.”

She was previously married to musician Max Drummey, of American indie pop band Chester French, in 2009 but split after six months.

Her mother, Paula Yates, died of a drug overdose in 2000. She was previously married to INXS singer Michael Hutchence, whose death in 1997 was ruled a suicide.

Peaches last tweet was a photo of herself as a toddler with Yates.
