Well with the article on the front page...<br /><br />"Maintain containment<br />As currently envisioned, the Mars Sample Return mission uses a completely passive entry vehicle. A return craft holding the specimen canister would be aerodynamically stable throughout its landing on Earth. The MSR entry craft would not require a parachute, Adler said.<br /><br />"The samples of Martian rock and soil would be in a container designed to withstand the impact and maintain its integrity as well as the integrity of the samples," Adler said.<br /><br />This design has been the lead candidate for about seven years, and a full-scale model was drop-tested at UTTR in 2000, he said."<br /><br />anyone have pioctures of this thing? As far as I've been able to tell, MSR is still vaporware...<br /><br />
