Initial Parachute Testing

Here is some cool footage that we recorded back in February of 2014, when Capitol’s Balloon Payload Program was first created. The following is a playlist of our initial tests of the parachute we have to be used for the tethered launches to be conducted at CTU.

  • Test 1 – Standard Parachute Deployment
  • Test 2 – Turbulent Drop Test
