On June 2nd we performed two tests:

  1. World’s first manned test of a ballute which is basically an inflatable parachute. This was to test the ballute before flying with the Nexø II rocket later this summer.
  2. World’s first skydive below a 2 stage reefed cluster of 3 parachutes. This was another step towards the parachute system that will bring the space capsule to a soft landing
