Launch Tower for LDSD

This image shows the tower from which the test vehicle for NASA's Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) will hang before a balloon lifts it to high altitudes. The rocket-powered test vehicle will reach near-space heights before testing landing technologies for future Mars missions. The test will occur at the U.S. Navy's Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii.
