Masten Space Flight 10 2009.07.02

The first test of 'autoland' capability on Masten Space Systems' XA-0.1B-750 vertical takeoff, vertical landing rocket vehicle. The vehicle is commanded to take off, then land itself and shut off the engine when it detects that it has landed. Previous flights shut down the engine after a specific time, rather than after landing detection. www.masten-space.com
