Our space capsule will need a cluster of three parachutes. We will soon perform our first test of such a cluster, which will be done with a skydiver. For safety reasons, he’s not allowed to land with the parachutes, so he will have to cut them away at an altitude of 1,500 meters. This is a quick test of the cutaway system in our workshop.
