Apollo 13 would have been a much shorter film if they'd been using one of these.

I like the idea of dropping a few from the ISS with messages on. Not sure of the chances of anyone ever finding them though...

I know this is all in the name of science and all, and super-lightweight planes may be just the ticket on Mars, but ...

Um. Would everything be made of paper? The computers and guidance? And is it just supposed to glide in? An uncontrolled glide. And would we all be sitting in the fold in space suits? You wouldn't be able to pressurize paper.
