nasa flying saucer

Did you know NASA is making a flying saucer?  It looks a little bit like something out of a science fiction movie, but it will actually be used for a future mission to Mars.  This new spacecraft was recently tested at about 180,000 feet above Hawaii.  Check out this amazing video from the test:

As you can see in the video, tests like this are very important.  The tests give NASA a chance to collect data as well as a means to see how equipment will perform.
