On June 29th we paid a visit to our good friends in Odense Faldskærms Center – a Danish skydiving club. Our goal was to put one brave skydiver under our homemade Spica space capsule’s Ballute and reefed parachute to test their design and performance. We were both lucky with the weather and the tests, so the only thing left to do is sift through the gathered data and verify the performance of our Kevlar Ballute.
