If we landed on a crumbling crater wall or an unstable sand dune, or were being dragged by a still-connected descent stage across the surface, then the RIMU would show that in its data set," he stated.
The Descent Stage was an eight sided space frame, with four brackets to connect to the legs (a modified version later became the telescope support on Skylab).
The lunar module basically consisted of two main halves: the ascent and descent stages.
In all there were more than 100 items left behind, including science instruments, tools, rubbish and the spider-legged descent stage of the lunar landing craft.
The frame at left shows the Apollo 14 descent stage and even astronaut's foot trails.
These elements are the Carrier Relay Orbiter stage, the Deorbit Stage, the Descent Stage, the Lander, and the Bio-Barrier," the SDT report said.
They include science instruments, tools, rubbish and the spider-legged descent stage of the lunar landing craft.
In October, Curiosity found a tiny shred of plastic that was eventually determined to have come from the rover itself 6 possibly a piece of the rocket-powered descent stage that helped guide the little craft to the surface of Mars.
Arrows with no labels point to the dark trails of footprints that surround the descent stage of the Intrepid lunar lander, from which the astronauts conducted two spacewalks.
We believe we've caught what is the descent stage impacting on the Martian surface," Sell said.
The descent stage is a platform with jets that will thrust against the planet's gravity until the rover is hovering about 50 feet off of the ground.
It will use new technologies to adjust its flight while descending through the Martian atmosphere, and to set the rover on the surface by lowering it on a tether from a hovering descent stage.
