Score another success for NASA's Morpheus lander.
Thursday's test flight from Kennedy Space Center appeared to have gone off without any problems.
This time, the goal was a 98-second flight, climbing about 803 feet and flying downrange 1,333 feet, with a pre-planned maneuver to change its trajectory.
"SUCCESS! Morpheus has landed," NASA tweeted.
The four-legged vehicle, a Johnson Space Center-led technology development project, has had a string of successful test flights.
