Game Changing Development Program Office Retreat

Members of the Game Changing Development Program Office attended an offsite team building retreat at NASA Wallops Flight Facility June 11-13. During that time, the team got to take a close-up look at the Inflatable Re-entry Vehicle Experiment (IRVE-3) hardware. IRVE 3 is a NASA flight test designed to demonstrate the feasibility of inflatable spacecraft technology. This test is the third in a series of suborbital flight tests and is scheduled to launch in July. It is one of NASA’s many research efforts to develop new technologies to advance space travel. It’s part of a project called HIAD for Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator — within NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist’s Game Changing Development (GCD) Program. Credit: NASA
