Higher!… Faster!… Project Morpheus Free Flight No. 5

It just gets better and better. NASA’s Morpheus Team successfully completed Free Flight 5 (FF5) at the KSC Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF). FF5, the 3rd free flight of Morpheus’ Bravo vehicle, was higher and faster than all previous flights. Bravo vehicle flew its pre-planned trajectory flawlessly, ascending quickly to 57 m (187 ft), traversing 47 m (154 ft) while descending, then landing ~11 inches from intended target in the Hazard Field about a minute after launch. The Morpheus Team again demonstrated engineering and operational excellence, relying upon training, experience, and discipline to ensure a successful FF5.
