Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:11 pm

An aerospace company is designing an unmanned plane to fly around Mars and gather scientific data.

Aurora Fight Sciences has responded to a NASA’s Scout mission proposals to explore the red planet with the idea of a plane that will “take off” on its descent into Mars’ atmosphere.

Aurora Flight’s MarsFlyer project, which will build on previous designs, will be delivered to Mars in a capsule via a conventional rocket.
