Hi everyone,

The last of the ground tests for the parachute was successful. You can
see pictures and video, including a neat 1200fps slow motion video of
the parachute being pulled out at:


Next step is a full recovery system test with parachutes, separation
ring, and a custom pyrotechnic node which we'll flight test by tossing
it off some, uh, very high place :)

We'll discuss that test this Tuesday; Frank, we're interested in
videotaping what happens by strapping the DVR and camera to the body..
could you please bring both then so we can discuss it? Thanks.

Take care,


Andrew Greenberg
