SpaceX Crew Dragon Parachute Test


The SpaceX #CrewDragon spacecraft parachutes successfully deploy during the latest development test. This test simulated a pad abort, where the vehicle is tumbling at low altitude before parachute deploy, validating SpaceX?s parachute models and margins. As a part of NASA?s Commercial Crew Program, SpaceX has been developing and testing the Crew Dragon parachute system, which is comprised of two drogue parachutes and four main ring-sail parachutes?the same type of parachutes that have been commonly and successfully used for human spaceflight in the past.
