Caption

Mars glider. Technicians with a prototype for a glider for use on Mars. A model of the glider folded up in a capsule is being held by the man at right. The glider would be folded up to save space on its journey to Mars on board a probe, and would unfold in the atmosphere. This glider was designed for a NASA project which intended to fly a controlled aircraft on Mars in 2003 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers' first powered flight on Earth. The project was cancelled due to a lack of funds. This glider was designed and built at AeroVironment Incorporated, a company specialising in efficient, clean vehicles based in California, USA.
