The Morpheus Team successfully completed the second free flight of the Bravo vehicle at the KSC SLF on Tuesday, December 17, 2013. The vehicle flew its pre-planned trajectory flawlessly, landing within 3.5 inches of its intended target. Morpheus ascended from the ground over the flame trench to an altitude of about 164 feet (50m), after pausing briefly at 82 feet (25m) to maintain the target ascent velocities. The vehicle then flew forward, covering about 154 feet (47m) in 30 seconds, before descending and landing on a dedicated landing pad inside the ALHAT Hazard Field. This was our highest and most ambitious test to date. As we continue free flights at KSC in January, we'll increase difficulty as we fly higher, farther and faster in 2014.
