Mizzou Engineer proposes new guidance law for landing on Mars

Landing a spacecraft on Mars isn’t an easy feat. According to NASA, only about 40 percent of all Mars missions have succeeded, because it requires a vehicle to go from 12,500 miles per hour to zero in a short amount of time while adjusting for heat, pressure and other constraints. Now, a Mizzou Engineer is proposing a new landing strategy that could be more efficient and effective than current methods.
