NASA Project Morpheus Goes Up In Flames And Other Weekend Links

Literally. Plus, 5 mysteries science can't explain and 12 supernatural tv shows from the '90s.

The low-cost Project Morpheus lander prototype, designed to carry cargo to the moon and other space destinations, lifted off the ground successfully but then failed its first autonomous free-flight test. Fire crews rushed to extinguish the flames of Morpheus, large enough to carry 1,100 pounds of cargo to the moon, such as a humanoid robot, a small rover or a small laboratory to convert moon dust to oxygen.A hardware component failure, which prevented it from maintaining stable flight, was to blame, NASA said.
