NASA

 NASA's new spacecraft lifted off from the U.S. Navy's Pacific missile range facility Saturday morning in Hawaii.
The space agency said its low-density supersonic decelerator, or LDSD, was carried by a giant balloon and the test appears to have been a success.
However, NASA does say its parachute didn't deploy as expected.
The powered flight and descent took 30 minutes.
NASA's disc-like LDSD went more than 20 miles above earth.
