Mini space shuttle has rough first landing

FILE - This artist's rendering provided by Sierra Nevada Space Systems shows the company's proposed Dream Chaser spacecraft docking with the International Space Station. The new, smaller version of NASA's space shuttle is recuperating from a rough first landing. The Nevada-based company tested a full-scale model at Edwards Air Force Base in California on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013. A helicopter dropped the unmanned craft from 12,500 feet (3,810 meters) in a first free flight. Everything worked well for the automated Dream Chaser model until the end, when the left landing gear deployed too late and the test vehicle skidded off the runway.
